|Paper crane made with upcycled vintage paper meant for the trash heap.|
The only problem was that the paper was fragile and it had an uneven texture which made uniformity a problem. I decided to just go for it and let the imperfection add to the sort of shabby retro look I wanted.
|I was going for a 70s retro feel.|
There are six cranes on this garland which I strung on green wool yarn. I added two coats of varnish because of the age of the paper. The cranes are held in place with wood beads and knots. It's about 5 feet long and has wooden beads at the top and bottom.
|Heavier large bead +2 at bottom|
I've done about 25 of these cranes. I plan on making at least one more garland with a different color yarn and several ornaments. See the full listing at Etsy.
