The Origami holiday tree is a 30 year tradition at the American Museum of Natural History. It marks the beginning of the holiday season in a beautiful and intricate way.
Every year there is a different theme for the tree. This year’s theme is Wicked, Wild, and Wonderful. It was inspired by the museum’s Power of Poison exhibit.
There will be hundreds of origami ornaments on the tree including snakes, tarantulas, poisonous frogs, characters from Shakespeare’s Macbeth and more!
It takes about five months to fold all the origami ornaments that will hang on the tree. People being creating the ornaments as early as July.
