Are there any trees at your outdoor venue? You could string them together and hang between two trees or hang them like Christmas ornaments from the trees.

We had thought about using this idea, and would have used the 1,000 cranes are our photobooth backdrop! Fun and colorful.

You are supposed to keep them, I think afterwords, to retain your good fortune.

When a friend got married she did this 🙂  It hung above the dance floor.  I’m pretty sure her florist help her put it all together.

Your total length of strung cranes will depend to some extent on the paper size you have used. 

I used a combination of 6″ and 3″ papers, and the strands I made all had cranes of both sizes. A strand of 90 cranes – 15 large, 75 small –  is about 5 feet long (they’re in my office now).

My stringing is much, much denser than the examples in the photos above, though. If you do something like that you can expect to get much more length – perhaps 3-4 times as much. However, you can also expect the stringing process to be much more work, because instead of letting each crane rest on the one below it you will have to introduce some mechanism for keeping them spaced apart.

One more thought on achieving the effect you want: there is no rule that says you can’t make more than a thousand cranes. It just means you made a thousand…and then you made some more. I definitely made more, simply because I wanted to make sure I wouldn’t accidentally end up with too few.
