Origami Crane Mobile

This origami crane mobile is exactly what I had in my mind’s eye before I started the project; thankfully I found some excellent how-to instructions to guide me through it. My first attempt at origami was more successful than I might’ve imagined, and although cutting, bending, and painting a wire hanger is not my idea of a good time, the results are pleasing. My only wish is to capture for you the way the red and blue glass beads spin on the strings–it’s magnificent!

After posting this last picture I was a bit worried that the mobile might be a little creepy (think Hitchcock’s “The Birds”), but Luke reassured me that babies “don’t get scared.” Hmm.
