Kid project: Make an origami paper lampshade

Filed Under: kids, Crafts, lighting

origami paper lampshadeKids love to draw and create things with paper. If they are complaining this holiday season that they don't have any money to get Gramma and Grampa the perfect Christmas gift, sit them down with some paper to make a paper lampshade.

Tomoko Fuse made an origami paper lampshade with a large piece of paper that was folded over and over again. The corner folding continued at the halfway points of the paper, with the paper being well creased with a bone folder. Horizontal creases were made at all intersections, which completed the folding process. The model was bend around so that all diagonal folds became mountains.

Your kids will not complain about being bored anymore if you give them the paper to do this fun origami project. Use caution with the fire retardant spray, please. An adult should spray the paper lampshade in a well ventilated area.
