I received a free copy of this Halloween origami ebook to review, but all opinions are my own.

I don’t know how it happened, but Halloween kind of snuck up on me this year. It’s not like it’s not the same time every year. But it’s been a busy fall (as usual, right?) and it was only yesterday that I finally pulled all the Halloween stuff out of the boxes and distributed orange and black things around the house.
The good news is, there’s still time to decorate for the spooky season, and there’s even still time to make some things, alone or with your kids, to decorate for Halloween.
I was recently offered a chance to review Origami for Halloween by Stéphane Gigandet, and it’s a super-cute book with 10 easy options for folding and decorating for Halloween.
The book is great for people without a lot of folding skill *raises hand* or for kids who want to make something cute without a lot of effort.
These are the projects that are included:
- easy ghost
- wavy ghost
- Halloween pumpkin
- Mr. Ghost
- Mrs. Ghost
- pumpkin box
- talking pumpkin
- spider web
Most of the projects are fine for beginners, and some, like those first couple of ghosts, don’t require careful folding at all, so they’re great for kids.
Those who are able to fold a little more consistently will enjoy the other forms, and if the instructions in the book aren’t enough videos for many of the shapes can be found on Gigandet’s YouTube channel.
I tried the easy ghost and the pumpkin (mine is yellow because I didn’t have any orange origami paper), and they were both quick, easy and satisfying to make.
The only thing that confused me about the directions, which are done in diagrams with standard origami folding symbols, it that the instructions go from left to right in the first row, then right to left in the second and so on, reversing direction each time. It’s probably the standard way to do it and something you’d get used to, but I kept feeling like I was lost when I was just looking in the wrong place for direction.
Origami for Halloween is available in ebook form for €5.50 (that’s about $6.50 US as I write this) or in paper form from Amazon for $9.99.
I love Stéphane’s origami designs. They are simple and just so cute!
