Papering the tree

We have somehow ended up without access to our usual box of family ornaments, so I am facing delivery of our cut Christmas tree in two days with nothing except fairy lights and some candy canes. The solution? Some DIY ornaments and quick!

These are some made from origami paper- they use a simple modular fold and construction called Japanese brocade. To hang them I have used a long needle to get embroidery thread through the middle of the ball and a small button at the bottom. So how many do you think I need to decorate a 1.5m tree? Three down, about 17 to go!
