The Artful Halloween Origami Bat
Make Your Own Halloween Bat Decorations
The Origami Bat is fun. I discovered a paper craft book that is very enjoyable, and the origami bat pattern in the book is easy and instructions are clear and well presented.
The book is called Paper Folding Made Easy by Kris Mason. This paper folder enthusiast has already written about the origami bat that appears in the book.
Hang around the bat cave and explore what one bat enthusiast has done for Halloween with an origami bat pattern.

Paper Folding Made Easy by Kris Mason - A Book Review
This book has a lot of bang for the buck. All the folds are easy. Folds for Kids, cards, scraping and decorations. Also cootie catchers, paper airplanes, the necklace chain and the origami bat.
Remember when you learned the necklace chain during the summer sessions at elementary school? Every summer I revisited that craft till 5th grade. 8 sheets of folding tiles for cards and box toppers are included.
Printed very attractively with dozens of pictures. KP Krause Publications, Iola, WI. 2002
Love This Book
The book in the above spotlight I have used repeatedly and tried every pattern. I have had fun using different paper motifs to make several cards in 4X5 and 5X7 inch sizes.
The paper bat pattern has given me a continued run of creative ideas. Halloween just makes more reason to paper fold bats.

and Paper Folding Crafts
Halloween is a holiday that many children enjoy. Put your imagination to work and share time around the kitchen table with young ones.
Try making the bats. Your creations just might be your cave's spooky denizens for many more Halloweens to come.

2012 Origami Bat Idea - Bats on Lavender Branch
Have you made the origami bat for Halloween?
I did a little altering to the pattern for this wall hanging.
Kris Mason, author of the book I highlight here, left a message in the comment section.
Open Book on Halloween Night
Hollowed room of dread
And imagined pain.
Dank and mossy stones
Gleam for night's rain.
Lightening blinks hinting
At dark and awful shapes.
Of yesterday's fates.
As he sits against the headboard,
Woolens pulled to the chin
Hoping to ward off a flashing sword.
Why! Such a little sin.
Demons of fright
Flung on the floor.
New book of Poe
There it lays at the door.
Red port and laudanum fare
Darken this cloudy lair.
No time soon the day breaking
Will rest this horror the storms are making.
