The American Museum of Natural History has its Holiday Tree on display, and what’s special about this tree is that it is decorated entirely with Origami Ornaments! The theme of this year’s tree is Wicked, Wild and Wonderful, honoring the Museum’s new exhibition The Power of Poison. The ornaments were created especially for the tree by volunteers who began a Facebook likes campaign for it and started folding them in July to complete hundreds of creations that are displayed on the tree and around its base. Here are some of our favorites from this years display!
