Christmas Kusudama Ball Ornaments

It's a little early to be thinking about Christmas, but with summer coming to an end and autumn just around the corner, I felt an urge to get a jump on holiday decorating. 

When I found these pretty red and green patterned paper, I couldn't resist making some Christmas ornaments.  These flower balls are called Kusudama (medicine) balls, traditionally made in Japan.  They were made with herbs and hung in rooms to prevent illness.  Today, these balls are made from 12 individual origami flowers, attached to each other to create this beautiful ornament.
