Trees symbolize the maternal attributes of protection, nurturing energies, stability, shelter and security. This puffy tree joins the collection of origami trees presented previously in Origami Spirit.
This origami tree can be a good complement to this origami house.
This origami tree is my own design and you can learn how to make it in the following video tutorial
Tips and suggestions for making this easy origami tree
- This origami tree is made with two pieces of paper. In the video the tree is demonstrated using thin kami paper, known in the U.S. as “origami paper”.
- Any other paper –such as gift-wrapping paper or printed paper from old magazines, is suitable.
- A good size for paper to begin with is 6 × 6 inches (15×15 cm) for the foliage, and 3 × 3 inches (7.5×7.5 cm) for the trunk
- The final figure shows only one side of the paper.
- If you can find the right colors you can make a tree representing each season of the year
- Pink or flower-patterned paper will represent a tree in spring’s blossom. Green paper will make a tree with a summertime feel. Orange paper will suggest fall foliage. White paper could represents a tree loaded with snow.
