Origami Crane DIY Paper Decorations
Origami cranes are absolutely my favorite paper folding project.
You can make an assortment of room or home decor using origami cranes. For example, put a bunch of little paper cranes on a glass to create an adorable glass decor.
But one of my favorite origami crane DIY paper decorations is the one where multiple paper cranes were strung on a piece of yarn or string that is attached both to the wall and ceiling.
I have seen something like this in one particular designer’s boutique sometime ago and I’ve fallen completely in love with the idea.
This can be perfect as a room divider if done with multiple pieces. Although the one I’ve seen was made using gold-colored paper, the natural color of newspapers will also work perfectly.
You can also use origami cranes as adornment for your Christmas trees. Use natural colored paper to contrast the green needles of your tree. However, you can also apply red, silver, or golden glitters to complement your other adornments.
Teach your children or younger siblings how to make these. This can be a fun bonding activity.
