Using Colorful Origami to Accessorize a Game Room
The results are often beautiful and work extremely well as decorating accents for the home. With a little imagination and creativity, you can use origami as the overall inspiration for a beautiful family game room.
Choosing Your Overall Origami Inspiration
There are so many possibilities when decorating with origami that it can sometimes be difficult to decide on an overall decorating theme.
You could focus on traditionally folded Oriental designs, and perhaps even purchase completed paper folding to use when decorating the room.
You could also look for posters and other kinds of artwork that show completed origami pieces.
Origami Decorating Supplies
Decorating supplies could include origami pieces that have already been created. Books and instruction sheets can also become beautifully framed wall art.
If you plan on creating some of your own origami decorations, you will need a good supply of paper. Although there is special paper designed for paper folding which works wonderfully, you can also use other colorful patterned papers such as scrapbook paper or even gift wrap.
Origami Decorating Ideas
You can use origami in the game room in a purely decorative fashion, or to add some functional and yet beautiful pieces to the room.
For example, a framed collage created from flat folded shapes can be beautiful as framed wall art, but a folded paper vase could hold a decorative arrangement of dried flowers or branches.
You can also create useful items for the room such as decorative storage boxes, letter holders, coasters, and picture frames.
You could even create a folded origami picture frame to highlight an Oriental poster or the beautiful cover from an instructional book on paper folding to add a decorating touch to the room.
