Origami Christmas Wreath (and other origami craft of the month)

Merry Christmas!

This morning I made a Christmas wreath.

I had been searching what to make next for December, but I didn't come across anything that I really want to take time to make.

But, I searched one more time, (since my daughter had been asking for an origami craft time) and I found this site. (I think it's in Portuguese) The slideshow of variation of the wreath is so pretty. Please check it out! I like the one with ladybugs in the center for totally different look. The ones with the bigger pins in the center of the flowers look lovely too. I'm planing to make it someday.




I used the sewing pins with the tiny round heads and secured the flowers onto a cardboard box to take this picture.







These STARWARS characters are from the origami book that I got for my son. (I wrote about it in previous post Here)

While I was writing this my daughter made a candy cane. 




A gift from a friend. She thought of me when she saw this. Thank you!



Year 2013 has been a great year for us.  I hope you will have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
