This weekend, I thought of decorating the hall room up a bit with my Origami. All of the models I had folded till date were getting stacked on a shelf at home or at my desk at work and I thought I’d do something about it. I made a simple ‘bird hanging’ with some of the bird models I had folded. This was a simple one, with no fancy beading or other trinkets.
For the second hanging, I used a single model, which is the Icosahedron designed by Richard Sweeney. This I had made using regular printing / copier paper which I then spray painted a variety of colors in order to make it look better. I opted to use natural beads for this hanging, which I purchased from Michaels (The Craft Shop). I also picked up ribbons which I used for this hanging.
All of the origami models in the two hangings are ‘threaded’ through using common sewing/stitching thread. If you follow the links in this post, it will take you to the individual posts for each of the models mentioned here. You will then be able to follow the folding instructions / source of diagrams.
