A few year back I had folded a bunch of origami cranes that I had hanging from a long strand in the corner of my room.  I got a bit bored with the way it look so I made a mobile with the cranes to change things up.  The cranes were in pastel shades so I arranged them like a rainbow.  The cranes move gently in breeze and liven up the room much more then they did before.

Step 1: What you will need

Very nice. My daughter's class did one a couple of years ago with 1000 cranes. I built a free-standing stand for them based on a design one of the children made. The whole thing was sold at the schools annual fundraising auction. The parent that bought it ended up giving several of the 100-crane sub-assemblies to the oldest children in the class. There are some photos of it at <a href="http://album.donie.us/incoming/2011-03NovaCraneMobile/2011-03NovaCraneMobile.html" rel="nofollow">http://album.donie.us/incoming/2011-03NovaCraneMobile/2011-03NovaCraneMobile.html</a>
Good night, Irene! that's amazing work. It's always nice to see project that involve kids and parents.
Wow, that looks gorgeous!
One of the things I've done to string cranes (like, say, 1,000) was to use a &quot;wreath form&quot; which was 2 or 3 wire circles joined together.
Nice, my son does origami since he was very young. Im going to have him make me one. Thanks for showing it. :-)
Wow, this is amazing! I need to make it!
