Year of the Pig Crafts

Posted on


While the Western New Year has come and gone, there’s still plenty of time to start preparing for the upcoming Lunar New Year, and a great way to celebrate is by making DIYs! 2019 is the year of the pig (or boar)—it is not an animal that is traditionally celebrated as cute, but they are definitely cute enough to warrant a craft post! Here are the five cutest piggy projects I could find.

The Kamikey Origami Youtube channel alone has plenty of origami options to celebrate the Year of the Pig. The wild pig origami daruma is a cute option if you’re looking for a craft with a traditional look!

If you would like to make your own money or gift envelopes for the new year, Kamikey also has a video showing you how to make an origami wild pig (boar) envelope—these would honestly be cute for any occasion though!

They even have a tutorial on origami pig message cards if you’d like something depicting a typical pig. These would be cute for hand-outs to friends and family or paired with a gift.
