I know I’ve never done a how-to, but there’s a first time for everything! This showcases an origami flock on your ceiling. It’s time-consuming, but looks kind of cool.
- Origami Paper
- Duct tape (color of your ceiling) (or Clear Tape:)
- Lots of time
First, you’ll need to learn how to make an origami crane. This video is super boring and kind of lame, but it’s what taught me. Click here for the video.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s start. You’re going to want to make several, so your crane isn’t a pathetic, lonely little guy. He could become suicidal. Do you really want that?
After you make a few, grab a chair and some string, and see how long you want your birds to hang. Afterwards, cut the rest of the string to sizes around that size.
Next, snatch a hole-puncher and punch those cranes. One at a time, you’re going to pull back the birds’ wings and punch in the little body part. Then, string it up. Try to make the knot as short as possible, so your birds can hang at the desired spot.
After this, hang them up. I, with my lack of long legs, had to jump from my chair and smack it on the ceiling. Jump (…or not) after you stick some duct tape to the top of your string.
Congratulations! You’ve finished. It’s worth it, know why? Because: do your friends have a random flock of cranes on their ceilings? No. So you win.
Alrighty. Enjoy your birds.
