Origami wall art

Today I want to show you a project, which I started last fall. My first attempt was nice, but the colors were not right. Even though I had some of these colors on pillow fabrics, on the wall they were too bright.

So I bought new papers and just yesterday I finally finished it! It looks great, it brings smile to my face every time I see it.

I found instructions somewhere in the blog land, but I struggled in some stages, so I decided to make my own!

You need some origami paper or just regular copy paper will do if you cut it in two square parts.
And for attaching it to a wall you need double-sided tape or blu-tack. That is all you need - if we don´t count patience ;)




This is not the easiest origami.If you have any questions, please ask! I try to help, even though explaining this in English may be challenging for me ;) 

Once you have completed the first one, you need to make some 20-30 more to have enough for a wall art ;) It depends on the wall and the arrangement how many you need. You could even glue these on canvas side by side or form a certain shape with these. The only limit is your imagination - and perhaps your patience ;)


  1. I think that the first set with bright colors looks nice too, atleast in the picture.

  2. Jenni - I love the new wall art! Thanks for your detailed instructions. What an easy and inexpensive way to add color and or texture to a wall. This might be a good project for my master bedroom once we have the headboard done.
