Peace Cranes for Ukraine - Origami Ornament for Christmas Tree, Car, ...
Origami cranes have long been a symbol of peace, and so I fold each of my cranes with a simple intention...
May there be peace for all people in all places throughout the world, and may peace dwell within me.
After meticulously folding each crane with white paper (which is whiter than pictured), I string it on embroidery floss and make a tassel on the end. I also include crystal and glass beads. The glass beads and floss on this particular ornament are blue and yellow, evoking the flag of Ukraine.
I will be donating 20% of the purchase of this peace crane ornament toMercy Corps: Crisis in Ukraine. They are a worldwide humanitarian organization and are on the ground in Ukraine, Romania and Poland working to meet urgent humanitarian needs.
Ornament size details - From the bottom tips of the tassel to the top of the crane is about 6 - 6.5 inches. The crane is about 3 - 4 inches wide. The embroidery floss above the crane is long enough to tie to a Christmas tree branch, car mirror, or anywhere else you might want a reminder of peace.
