I usually use 2 inch or 3 inch paper to make kusudama balls and I happened to find this tie dye inspired origami paper in 6 inch size. Instead of using it for something else or cutting it up I tried folding it into a kusudama ball in the 6 inch size. It made a really nice big flower ball. I loved the big size and used it in my own home as decoration in the dining room hanging from the ceiling fan. The large size is a nice alternative I think is nice for decorating.
Kusudama balls are made by folding a single sheet of origami paper into a "petal" for the five petal flower. Once five petals are folded they are combined with glue form the flower. 12 flowers (60 petals) are needed to make one kusudama ball.
This large kusudama ball was made with beautiful tie dye style origami paper. It comes with white ribbon for hanging.
This piece is approx. 9 inches wide. The ribbon for hanging is 9 inches long.
This would be a beautiful ornament, room decoration, nursery decor, decorative fan pull, window decoration, wedding decoration or as a decoration over a crib in nursery.
This ornament and all items are made in a smoke free home and studio.
***There will be some variation in the paper and paper placement used on each ball because the pieces are handmade and placed, so please expect some variation from the picture.****
