Dodecahedra Origami Luminaria

Dodecahedron Star Lantern

After seeing these at a friend’s home recently, I did a google search and found a couple of nice tutorials (Dodecahedron Star Lantern Tutorial from Mom’s Crafty Space and another from for making these Dodecahedron (Pentagram) Star Lanterns; these could also be made using the Dodecahedron foldup pattern, although this design with the 5 folded over triangles on each pentagonal face highlights the inscribed pentagram (5-pointed star) on each face in an artistic way. This is a great kid’s construction project featuring sacred geometry.
