Origami Spider Web – DIY Paper Halloween Decoration Tutorial

Origami Spider Web – DIY Paper Halloween Decoration Tutorial


Hello! In this video I’m going to show you how to make my new model, an origami spider web. It’s a model that I like because depending on where the light is coming from you get interesting shadows and reflections. I also made another version of this design with a spider and a fly. It’s made from only one piece of paper with different colors on each side. To fold the spider web you need a square piece of paper that you can cut from one piece of copy paper and we’ll start by folding along one diagonal. Mark the fold, then bring this tip to this tip and mark the fold. Then take one tip here and bring it to the opposite tip. Again mark the fold, turn the model to the other side and bring this tip to this tip and mark the fold. Now we are going to bring this edge here to this edge mark the fold. So that you can see better I’m going to mark this fold here so this is the crease of the fold that we just made and I’m going to mark it on the other side as well. And the reason I’m marking it is that we need it for the next fold. So the next fold we are going to start from this point here at the corner and we’ll fold like this and you want the crease lines to be lined so once it’s lined in mark the fold. Now we are going to fold again this fold on all layers. So we have lots of layers so you really want to mark the fold well and unfold. And now we are going to make some parallel divisions like that and we want an odd number of divisions. We are going to make nine divisions so of course you can use a ruler if you want to be very precise but what you can do as well is just divide into thirds and to do that take the tip and fold it down. And the idea is that you want this distance to be roughly equal to this distance here and mark the fold well and now we are going to bring this crease here to this crease and mark the fold and we should have thirds roughly. And now we are going to repeat the same thing here to get thirds again. Now bring this crease to this crease and fold. For the next pieces you can just like this anyone to take this crease here and put it on that one and mark the fold then bring this crease to this crease now fold and then we need to take that one and bring it to the last crease mark the fold we are almost done without division we’ll just take – take this one – the last one in Mugler fold well as well so once we have all our nine divisions we can unfold the model and you will see that we have something that looks like a spiderweb already and we are going to put it in three dimensions and to do that we fold again all those folds so that they become Mountain folds – Jagan folds and goes just funny so now we are going to invert this fold so that this mountain becomes a valley and when you do that you get a kind of pyramid so turn the model to the other side keep this part of that and to lock it we are going to fold along the existing crease here so take all layers and fold them together like this all the way and Maxo follow well and then same air ever so existing crease and we are going to fold it inside like this the do the same thing on all the other sides so fold along the existing creases and push the tips inside and that’s going to help us to lock okay I made one last one so now that all the flaps are inside if you turn the model again to the other side you get the kind of hexagonal pyramid you can fold again this one here and you get an exact model pyramid okay now what we are going to do is we are going to push inside those creases so that we have one Valley one month n1 or a one month in Exeter so we are going to collapse the pyramid into a spider web starting at the top and we have some crazies here so this one is going to be evaluate this one and montane exeter so I’m going to put some fingers inside so one finger here and the other I’m going to put it just below the second crease so that crease is going to become a mountain so I’m going to put my fingers and then gently try to push inside like this and you want to mark this mountain fold not worry too much about the valley fold inside we’ll do it on the other side that hotel to model and try to do pull the mountain folds and here I’m just folding so creases that we have already folded just follow the crease line and mark the fold keep rotating the bottle and knock the mountain fold and that first layer is the most difficult one because it’s smallest so you see other layers are going to be easier so now I have a nice example of mountain folds and we are going to try to improve the valley folds and to do that it’s easier to just look under the model and again put one finger here and try to make a nice circle exact go on air and well just use your fingers like this to knock someone ten fold and now we can continue one more level so again I’m going to put my fingers so this is going to be a valley fold and that one will be a mountain fold so actually I already have a mountain fold here so take this side put your finger under and try to push so that you get a monitor so here I have my mountain fold I’m going to mark it and then rotate the model and maximum ten fold all the way push the valley fold inside maximum ten this is where I have a double layer maxi fold well [Applause] take your time now we have a fold my mountain fold for the second layer and you can go under and just pinch like this Rumaki so valley folds and you can continue like that for all the other layers I’m going to accelerate the video for cos early years richly here push the valley folds inside and then mark the mountain folds then once you have all the mountain folds knocked there on the model to the other side to max the valley folds it’s not a difficult model but it takes a bit of practice once you have done your first spiderweb it will be much easier to make the second and your spider web is complete I hope you like this spider web model if you make several spider webs you can use them as exceptional ties in the next video I will show you what to add the spider and a fly to the web we still only one square of paper if you full despite the web or another of my origami models please send me pictures so that I can show them in the next videos a lot of you folded my new led me back model thank you very much for all your cool pictures and very happy that you like this origami bat. Please keep the pictures coming! Thank you very much, Happy Halloween Happy Folding!
