This is an origami bat with great battitude and batsonality! It flutters into our spooky space to join a growing group of origami models for Halloween previously featured in Origami Spirit.
Jennifer Linderman –artist, teacher and a wonderfully creative friend of mine, is the designer of this bat. Folding it makes me wish to be a child again and attend Jennifer’s fun-filled origami classes.
Spanish fun fact: Bat in Spanish is murciélago, a word containing the five vowels: u, i, e, a, o.
The following step-by-step video shows how to make this cute origami bat. Thank you, Jennifer, for giving permission to present your model.
Tips and suggestions for making the origami bat
- In the video, the bat is demonstrated using a very thin paper.
- The smaller you want to make this bat the thinner the paper that should be used.
- A good paper size to learn the model would be 7×7-inch (18×18cm)
- The finished paper bat shows two sides of the paper. It is best to use paper with the same color on both sides.
Hang these origami bats upside down from a thread
to make a garland of halloween bats.
Use your bats as part of Halloween compositions.
