One of the many driftwood projects I planned to do is this - to use driftwood as a wall hanger. Onto which I wanted to hang paper boats. These I learnt to make as a child and has been absolutely my favorite origami project throughout the years.
To make them you need craft paper, sewing thread and needle and of course - driftwood.
I cut an A4 sheet in half. You can use any size of paper for different sizes of boats.
Fold the piece in half.
Next, fold the sides inward.
Fold the lower part upwards
Do the same with the other side.
Put the fingers inside and pull outwards.
The paper resembles a diamond at this stage.
Press it and tuck in the sides.
Next, lift the bottom and fold.
Fold the other side, too.
Take the paper in your hands, put the fingers inside and pull.
It will look like this.
Pull the sides so that the center piece springs up.
Shape it up and your boat is done.
We did didn't have many colored paper to choose from so we made several white ones and the kids colored them in colors of their choosing (the bottom part of the picture).
These can make a cute mobile too. When Jacob was a toddler I had a mobile with these boats hung over his bed.He found them quite amusing.
