Origami, does this word sound familiar? Of course, we all were introduced to it when we were quite young, when we made that cute little basket from a paper square or those airplanes. A prevalent paper craft from Japan, it uses folding techniques to create simple to complex three dimensional objects.Origami, no longer an alien concept, has become very popular worldwide. Apart from being a versatile craft it gives us some lessons too, for the starters it has taught me dexterity and persistence. One wrong fold and I may have to start the project from the scratch. Every turn and twist holds a promise of immense creativity and beauty. Origami has also taught me that simplest of things can be turned into fantastic creations if there is a proper application of thoughts.
A few days back a friend asked me that she wanted to decorate her daughter’s room in a different way for Christmas and wanted her daughter too to contribute in making a few projects. One that I suggested and readily came to my mind was this Kusudama paper flower Christmas wreath!
Materials required to make Kusudama Paper Flower Christmas Wreath
- Origami papers
- Thick cardboard/corrugated sheet for base
- glitter paper
- Fabric glue/ Any glue
How to make Kusudama Paper Flower Christmas Wreath
We start with the circle. Take any corrugated box and cut a circle measuring about 18 inches diameter from it. Then cut a concentric circle with a 10 inch diameter to form a ring shape.Now take a sheet of glitter paper and stick it to the circle using fabric glueand trim the edges to perfection.
Now comes the origami bit. How to make kusudama paper flowers? Folds are the key to origami and sometimes it can be a little tricky. My suggestion would be to just try with a scrap piece of paper, these petals and when you get a hang of it, move on to make in the fair colored paper. The steps are self explanatory and hope you are able to follow them from the photographs.
Once you have made enough petals, glue them side by side to make the flower. 5 petals per flower will be perfect so depending on your requirement, make enough petals first and then start sticking into a flower.
Next stick these flowers in to the glitter ring base you had made earlier. Try any arrangement you feel is good and it will be better if you can intersperse the flowers with some leaves.
Paste a hoop made with a golden lace behind the circlet for hanging and we are ready.
A quick and simple task to give that extra dash of colour and brightness to your kiddo’s room.Wishing more merry & joy for this Christmas!
