Here is our second origami crane art jar. For this we kept our theme of ascending cranes (similar to the concept of stringing 1,000 origami cranes to bring a person good luck), but created more of a nature setting. The cranes are made with red origami paper, strung on a fine strand of thread. The stylized trees are made from magazine paper, and glued to the bottom of the jar. The grass is a bit of floral-arrangement moss which was also sealed to the bottom of the jar. The jar is also repurposed, with the lid painted with acrylic paint with a sprig of floral wire attached. The floral wire is accented with hand-stitched fabric leaves and a few more origami cranes.











Questions and comments are always welcome, thank you! Smiley

Pretty! It's very neat how you made the trees. And cranes made with pretty paper are always a win.

I love it! It's reminds me of visiting my great-grandma's house. She had a shelf full jars that were their own self-contained worlds. They were always of such great curiosity to me when I was younger and even now. Thank you for reminding me of such great memories!

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

This is simply amazing.  I love the repurposed theme, and everything seems to come together into a cohesive whole.  Nice work.

How do you attach the cranes to the top bottom of the lid?

That is just too awesome. I would love to make something like that. A while ago, I got into terrariums, and this is just a lovely idea.  Thanks for sharing.
