- Long and thin strips of paper. I used commercial lucky star origami paper, but you can easily make your own with a paper cutter.
- A needle
- Something to hang the chain on while it dries.
I folded the strips the same as I would to make lucky stars, but instead of poking in the sides I left them flat. It looks better if you lightly crease the paper rather than trying to make it completely two dimensional.
When I had the pieces folded, I strung them on a string using a needle. I poked the needle in one corner and pulled it out of the opposite corner.
To add some sturdiness and durability I dipped it in Polycrylic and let it dry. The Polycrylic will drip so made sure that the area below is protected. If you want it to be really sturdy you can do a second dipping, but I have been generally satisfied with one layer.
I tied a loop at the top and hung it on a thumb tack. It made a good divider that breaks up the pictures on the wall.
Alternately you can make several strands and hang them in a row.
