Here are a few ornaments that I made.  I call them ornaments, but you can hang them as decorations any time of year. 

You can't talk about origami with out bringing up these things...  I made the hook with a paper clip.  If you're interested in learning how to make a paper crane, you can go here

The red & white ring and the blue & white 8 point star are actually the same fold (they can transform!)  *I just posted a video of how to make the 8 point stars on my website*

Paper balloons of various sizes...  It was tricky installing the paperclip loop on these... they're so delicate. 

Here are some peace doves... maybe I could hot glue an olive branch into their beaks.  You can learn how to make these here

This is not strictly origami but it involves folding and paper.  If you go to http://easyphotocube.com you can make a pattern for a paper photocube with a photo and or message on each side.  If you tape a thread to the inside of the cube after you cut it out but before you fold and assemble it you will have a hangable ornament whne you are done.  One is already at their gallery.  Since you can email links to the patterns and they can contain messages, the photo cubes can serve as a greeting or last minute holiday cards as well.  If you think that this should go into another section, please put it there.

This is not strictly origami but it involves folding and paper...
The term "origami" seems to mean different things to different people... there's the very strict / conservative "one square sheet with no cuts" to the super liberal "anything where paper (and sometimes non-paper) might be folded." 
I tend to use my own hybrid definition...
  • one or multiple sheets of paper (or paper-like material)
  • folding is emphasized over cutting when making shapes... though cutting is a necessary evil at times... lol
With that said, I wouldn't call your link origami, but it's still kind of a cool idea.
