13 Incredibly Creepy Origami Spiders

Keeping up with the Halloween theme here are some very creepy looking origami spiders.  There’s something about origami insects that makes them very easy to design in such a way that they look incredibly life-like and these spiders are excellent examples.

Here’s a great spindly looking spider designed by Manuel Sirgo and folded by Pere Olivella

I’m 99% sure that all of these spiders are folded from one square sheet of paper.  Some of the sheets of paper are quite large.  Be sure to check out all of these artists on Flickr and be sure to check back for more Halloween themed origami soon!
