Origami wall art
I love geometric shapes.
I am also partial to a good bit of origami. There is something intriguing about creating a series of folds that will eventually form a shape that needs no glue to hold it together.
I found this tutorial the other day. These are such simple shapes to make. Officially they are a "triangular bipyramids" but I like to think of them as funky shapes.
I didn't really know where I was going with making them. They were just very addictive!
I eventually decided on stringing them on white cotton and hang them.
To do this simply grab one of your triangles and a long needle. Then choose two points on the shape and string it on.
On some I made knots so that the triangles hung on the cotton, on some they are resting on each other. I also varied how I strung them, going through different points each time to make them hang at different angles.
I then created a loop in cotton and hung them on two tacks hammered into my wall.
They are peaceful floating there on my wall. Colourful and delicate geometric shapes.
