In another effort to decorate the house and use up crafting supplies that were building up I made some Origami art. I am no origami expert, but I think on a whole it turned out well. First, I made a hole bunch of cranes . . . the only thing I kind of knew how to make already.
I then strung them on a thick thread with some nice beads. And then I hung them from the ceiling.
My roommates seem to enjoy them so it was a successful project. Due to the fact that these were displayed in the house. I found that I got more origami papers for Christmas and needed to determine something to do with them. I hate wasted craft supplies. I didn't want to do the same thing. So I searched the internet for something interesting looking that wasn't too difficult to actually do. As I said I'm no origami expert. I found these things called Sonobe units that make interesting shapes from origami units. I then picked a patterns that would allow me to make two chains with the amount of paper I had avaliable to me. I made two Stellated Octahedrons and four Diamonds. I then strung them together with some beads and presto! More cheap artsy decorations!
They are actually the same size, I just take bad photos! So, even with my basic origami skills I was able to make some cool cheap decorations that everyone seems to enjoy.
