This decorative mask is perfect for devil worshipping origami enthusiasts, or for those of you who would just like to decorate your home for Halloween.

I have included origami diagrams, detailed instructions and a video.

(Note:Some of the images may be recycled from my previous origami instructable).

Step 1: What you need


You can use any paper that you like; origami paper, printer paper, tissue paper etc. I like shiny paper; if you don't have any you can use the wrapper from a chocolate bar.

If you are not using origami paper or paper that is perfectly square you will need scissors to cut it.

Making a square
To make a square from a rectangular piece of paper, fold the bottom left corner up to meet the top edge and cut off the bit of paper that is left over (see images below).

Step 2: Bird base: crease paper

To start out making the bird base it is always good to make creases so that subsequent folds are easier to make.

  • Place paper colour side down.
  • Fold bottom edge up to meet top edge, unfold.
  • Fold right edge over to meet the left edge, unfold.
  • Fold bottom left corner up to meet top right corner, unfold.
  • Fold bottom right corner to meet top left corner, unfold.

Tip: One of the keys to making great origami models is to be precise with your folding, making sure that the edges meet perfectly. If you are a sloppy folder (like me), use paper that has the same colour on both sides so that it hides the poorly made folds.

Here is my devil mask! I usually like challenging models, but this was too cute to not make :) Notice in my photos how I added a couple details, like the nostrils and the curled brows and horns, and I tapered out the beard :D
