Himmeli origami fusion

I have loved experimenting with some of my favourite practices of late and combining my loves in himmeli and origami proved fruitful in my Christmas tree design for this year.

I used some paper straws (holographic, metallic silver and white) left over from my children’s birthday parties this year, together with little origami stars (also made from metallic silver and holographic papers) to construct striking festive garlands.

I then hung these garlands vertically, alternating with my rows of Christmas lights. The resulting effect is beautiful in its simplicity and pattern.
