Difficulty Level: Easy
You need square origami paper to make this bat. Any color would do, but it is better to use paper with a black color on one side. Face the black (or colored) side down. Fold it crosswise in half along the dashed line.
It will now look like a small triangle. Now fold it in half lengthwise. Crease the origami paper well and unfold it.
Follow the dashed line and fold the paper upwards. Do not fold in half. You must leave some space on the top corner as this will be the head of the bat.
It should now look like this. Fold the small triangle-down.
Fold the paper backward in half. This fold is called a mountain fold.
To give the wings of the origami some dimension, fold the outer layer to the right along the dashed line.
It is now starting to look like a bat. Turn the origami piece over.
Fold the right-wing to the left along the dashed line.
Fold the top wing to the right. Follow the dashed line.
You now have two rectangular wings. Fold the left wing to the back.
To give the bat’s wing more dimension, fold the top wing along the dashed line.
Please do the same on the back wing, but now this time, fold it backward (mountain fold).
Spread the wings of the origami bat by gently unfolding the flaps of each wing.
Your three-dimensional origami bat is done! Hang it as mobile or paste anywhere it as décor. Use it to spook your family and friends this Halloween.
