My friend saw a wall hanging of origami koi that she really liked, but the etsy shop that was selling it had it priced at over $1000. Thus, I set out to make this for her birthday/Christmas present, and after countless hours of folding while walking, an art that I have mastered, I finally finished the koi and attached them to the friend's bedroom wall.
UPDATE: Here's version 2.0 of this tutorial, complete with LED mood lighting.
Step 1: Materials
- origami paper (one square per koi you're making)
- wire (not too thin; I used 20 gauge)
- hot glue gun
- (optional): string
