Origami White Radish (Daikon) Craft

Pin It
Japanese white radish or "daikon" is a favorite for stews and other dishes in Japan. Here's a way to make a cute little white radish from tissue paper and a little origami paper to put in your toy produce section. 


  • 1 tissue(Kleenex)
  • 1 small sheet of light green origami paper
  • tape
  • scissors


  1. Cut the tissue in 4 quarters to make 4 equal squares.
  2. Take 1 quarter square and make a tight, little cone shape. Put a little piece of tape to keep the shape.
  3. Place the cone on 1 more quarter piece of tissue. Line it up on the corner.
  4. Place just a bit of glue on the corners and wrap up your cone. Twist the excess at the top of your daikon into a little tail.
  5. To make the daikon leaves, cut a standard piece or light green origami paper in quarters.
  6. Take one quarter and fold in half.
  7. Use scissors or special craft scissors and make many little zigzags cuts along the open end to make the leaves.
  8. Place the daikon's "tail" on the folded side of the origami paper and secure with a piece of tape. Roll up the tail in the green leaves and secure the outside with tape or a little glue. You're done.
