Using some origami paper, you can make beautiful garlands to decorate your home.
- 8mm silver beads
- Sewing machine (Optional)
- Paper glue
Where can I find origami paper in Hong Kong?
For 12HKD, you can find some in Living Plaza.
I would also suggest CN square 503 Nathan Road which has a large selection of beautiful papers.
Or if you are like me a paper lover, I am sure you have some left-over papers from previous projects.
For this project I have chosen a round & a lozenge shapes however you can use any shape you like: triangles, stars, hearts… I also used this one as I have a 1″ 1/2 punch hole as you can see on the picture below.
Cut out 2 circles and glue them back to back.
Then repeat to create as many circles as you need.
Place 4 circles on top of each other and see them in the middle, leave 10cm and sew again 4 circles, etc…
You have to fold the circles to create a nice “sphere” effect.
If you do not have a sewing machine, you can glue half sections of the circles together and before gluing the last one, make sure you put the wire in between the circles! Add some glue to fix the location of each sphere.
Here is an example of the second option in lozenge shape made with a blue color gradation and silver beads.
A summary of the steps:
And the result:
This DIY is so simple you can do it with your children for a crafty afternoon!
Depending on the type of papers you are using, you can create a nice zen feeling for your home.
If you like Japanese patterns, you can have a look at my Japanese fabric zipper pouch.
