Origami Pyramid Pixels for 3D Paper Wall Art instructions and tutorial
Easily make your own stunning 3D DIY Wall Art with this easy to make and fun to play with origami pyramid pixels. No cuts, no glue and no tape! Each triangular 3D pyramid is folded from 1 square of paper, and they are joined by folding on the back!
Those new pyramid pixels are a very easy and fun way to create striking paper wall art. It takes only 30 seconds to make each triangular origami diamond (they do look a lot like precious stones if you use shiny paper!), and once you have made several of them, you can play with them to create triangles, diamonds, hexagons, stars and other geometric shapes. It's like Legos! Once you have decided on the shape, you can join the pyramids together by folding flaps on their back. You can then hang your paper wall art on a wall and use it to decorate the rooms in your house.
You may have seen other DIY tutorials to create similar wall art, but they all require cutting, glueing and much more work. Those 3D paper pyramids are different, they are a new original pure origami model, created by Stéphane Gigandet.
These origami pyramid pixels are compatible with the flat square origami pixels and triangle origami trixels, so you can mix and match them and be very creative! Next week I will also show how to make 3D tricorne pixels, so make sure to subscribe!

Tutorial for the triangular paper trixels
Before making the 3D pyramids, I recommend that you try the square pixels first as they are very similar, but they are easier to join as you can join them by folding on a table. Since the pyramids are in 3 dimensions, you need to join them by folding in the air, which require a bit more practice.
We are creating a collective origami mosaic with the paper pixels, would you like to participate? Join us to create a great collaborative artwork!
In the video, I use 15x15 cm (about 6 inches) origami paper (kami) to demonstrate how to fold and join the pyramids.
The wall decor shining star is made with smaller 7.5 cm squares.
And the big triangular wall decoration that is hanging in my book case is made from color copy paper (8 cm squares).
Important note: those origami pyramids are an original origami model designed by Stéphane Gigandet and protected by copyright law. Do not publish videos, diagrams, instructions, photos etc. that show how to make wall art with those pyramids, and instead link to this video or embed it. Thank you.
