Easy Spooky Origami To Make This Halloween

Halloween season is underway, and what better time to try out the Japanese art of Origami? The Japanese word “origami” itself is a compound of two smaller Japanese words: “ori” (root verb “oru”), meaning to fold, and “kami”, meaning paper.

Japanese origami began sometime after Buddhist monks carried paper to Japan during the 6th century. The first Japanese origami dates from this period and was used for religious ceremonial purposes only, due to the high price of paper.

There are several origami stories in Japanese culture, such as a story of no Seimei making a paper bird and turning it into a real one.

The technique has evolved and there are currently many Halloween themed origami projects you can try. Check out some of them below, and show us your own Halloween paper creations.!
