Origami Reindeer

Origami Reindeer Step by Step

As already mentioned, we will fold the deer not from one piece of paper, but from two, since we need to fold the head separately, and after that – the body. Prepare paper of the same size. In this work, special origami paper was used, on one side of which there is a drawing, and on the other, white, thanks to which it is possible to highlight the chest part of the deer.

Folding our Heads

Fold the square paper into a triangle.

Then fold again into a smaller triangle, guiding the paper from right to left to define the middle.

Open the paper to the first triangle and lower the top corner down.

Point the right corner up, aligning it in the middle.

Then lift up the left side of the paper.

Fold the right side of the paper in the middle.

Then left.

The upper corners, future horns, bend to the sides.

It is as easy as the head to fold the body of this animal.
For him, take the second piece of paper.

At the initial stage, the same steps. Fold the square into a triangle.

Then again, moving the right corner to the left.

Open and bend the outer part of the top corner down, slightly beyond the bottom side, so that a small corner sticks out, which will be the tail of a deer.

Bend the side corners towards each other.

Flip over to the other side.

Pull the top corner down.

Then return it to its original position and bend a small corner down.

Then lower this part of the paper again.

Fold the model in half.

Flip the ponytail to the side. The body is completed.
