Ever since I was a small kid I’ve liked doing origami. I can’t say I’m great, but I can certainly fold a thing or two. I’m going to be integrating origami into our escort cards (I’m hoping to finally be able to blog that soon, it’s been a bit of an nightmare!), but I think there are a lot of other places we can integrate some of my origami skills.
I think that this Kusudama ball is absolutely gorgeous. How cute would it be to find a cool patterned origami paper (or even just plain white, for simplicity) and make up a bunch of these, secure a ribbon in the center of each ball, and then attach them to the end of the pews for the ceremony? Since we don’t have any money in our budget to decorate our church, I think this would be such a fun way to add an interesting element to things.
And, the best thing? It doesn’t take much origami knowledge at all to make these flowers, it really only takes time, which means I can recruit helpers when the time comes! Check out these easy instructions to make your own. This is totally what I’m going to be doing this weekend as I’m holed up, trying to survive whatever awful weather is thrown at us next!
