The Origami Knight Helmet is so versatile! You can make it with printer paper and it will be about 3.5″ tall, which would make nifty place settings. Use bigger or smaller rectangles to make different size helms. You could even have a medieval party and first decorate your paper, then make the Knight Helmets out of the paper! So many ideas.
You will find the written and pictorial pattern for the Origami Knight Helmet below.
Origami has been one of my hobbies since I was 8 years old. My grandmother introduced me to origami and it remains something that keeps her close to my heart. I’m pleased to be able to share this ancient art form with you! You can find more Origami Pattern Tutorials here: https://www.jessieathome.com/origami-patterns/
