A while back, Mr. Sew and I made a bunch of cranes for no real purpose other than to fulfill tradition. They are technicolored, and while I thought about re-folding or spray painting them, I decided to take the sage advice given last time, and just leave them as-is.
Now: what will we do with them?
I’m thinking of decorating our ceremony place up a little with them. Maybe we could hang them from the pews?
It might make for some fun, colorful photographs.
Or maybe we could have a curtain of cranes as guests walk into the reception?
Any other ideas?
I bought a bunch of glass pearls from Fire Mountain Gems, and started stringing them all up.
Two birds, one pearl, two birds, one pearl.
Forty birds per strand, for a total of 25 strands.
Mr. Sew used some metal wire to create little hooks for the end of each strand.
And he made an adjustable cardboard “shower curtain rod” for them should that make attachment easier.
Another project bites the dust! Box it up and ship it off!
What would you do with 1001 cranes at your wedding?
