This week and for the upcoming new year, I made a strand of twelve origami prosperity hens –one for each month of the year. It’s modeled after a similar idea, the multicolored prosperity hens, made of fabric and commonly found in northern India.
Welcoming the arrival of the New Year I perform small personal rituals to cleanse the spirit. I like creating an atmosphere of renewal, and set my intentions for the next twelve month cycle.
Each of the origami hens in this garland is filled with rice –adding to the symbolic meaning of prosperity. I hung the hens at the entrance to my kitchen.
I share video instructions to make the strand of twelve origami prosperity hens in the video below, wishing all Origami Spirit visitors, family, friends and loved ones the following blessings:
1 love :: 2 health :: 3 prosperity :: 4 peace :: 5 creativity :: 6 compassion
7 wisdom :: 8 patience :: 9 courage :: 10 good luck :: 11 satisfaction :: 12 joy
Happy New Year!
