Origami Bat instructions and tutorial

Learn how to make this very easy origami bat model, and then make lots of paper bats to decorate your house for Halloween! This origami bat has big diamond shaped eyes, and large wings, and if you want, you can make it stand on its legs. Or you can stick your DIY paper bats on windows and walls, they make great Halloween decorations.

I love creating origami Halloween models. This bat goes well with my Wavy Ghost origami model as both models share the same eyes. The Wavy Ghost and the Bat are easy models that are quick to fold, so they are perfect for kids and origami beginners, to do at a Halloween party etc.

If you are looking for easy origami models for Halloween, also check out my origami pumpkins! There's a very easy one with only a few fold, a pumpkin box, and even a talking pumpkin.

To fold the origami bat, you need a square piece of paper, with a different color on each side (for the eyes of the bat). In the video, I use a 15x15 cm square (about 6x6 inches). It's an easy model so you can also make smaller bats.
