Easy Origami Duck (How to Make)

Jan 19, 2024 · Leave a Comment

Learn how to make easy origami duck with this step by step tutorial and video guide. With just a few simple folds , you can make these paper ducks in under 5 minutes!

2 paper ducks against a marble background.

This is a beginner origami tutorial. The ducks are made using a square sheet of pre-cut origami paper measuring 15 cm by 15cm. I used a double sided paper with different color on each side, but single sided paper is all you need as the finished ducks will only show one side of the paper.

Each origami duck measures 15cm wide and 8cm tall.

🎥Video Tutorial

✂️how to make, expert tips, what can you do with these origami ducks, ❤️more crafts you will love.

Here is the video tutorial on how to make origami ducks. The full list of materials and step by step instructions and images are right below.

  • Single sheet of square origami paper (measuring 15cm by 15cm). This can be a single sided paper.

Step 1: Make the body

Place the paper with the colored side facing down. In this tutorial, I am using a double sided paper with blue on one side and green on the other. I am making a blue duck, so the blue side is facing down and the green side of the paper is facing up.

Folding a blue paper.

Fold the paper diagonally by bringing the opposite corners of the square sheet together to form a triangle. Make sure the corners and sides of the paper are aligned. Press the fold firmly and then unfold ( images 1 & 2 ).

Folding a blue and green paper.

Place the paper down with the folded line in the step above positioned horizontally. Bring the top left edge to the diagonal folded line. Press the fold ( image 3 ).

Repeat with the bottom left edge ( image 4 ).

Step 2: Fold the head

Folding a blue paper.

Turn the paper over ( image 5 ).

Folding the head of a blue origami duck.

Bring the pointed end on the left to the right, stopping it at the intersection of the top and bottom corners as well as the right and left corners. Press the fold ( image 6 ).

Lift the same pointed end and fold in back to the left, with the tip placed exactly at the fold in the step above ( image 7 ).

Step 3: Fold the tail

Folding the head of a blue paper duck.

Turn the paper over and fold it horizontally along the line that is already present horizontally on the paper ( images 8 & 9 ).

Folding the tail for a blue origami duck.

Place the paper as shown. Lift the bottom tip and fold it to the left. Unfold ( images 10 & 11 ).

Folding the tail for a blue origami duck.

Re-fold the tip as shown ( image 12) . Press the fold and unfold the paper ( image 13 ).

Folding the tail for a blue origami duck.

Open up the fold made earlier ( image 14 ).

Folding the tail for a blue origami duck.

Push the tail inside along the first set of folded lines as shown ( image 15 ).

Push it up again along the second set of folded lines ( image 16 ) to complete the tail.

Step 4: Bring out the head and draw the eyes

Folding the head and neck of a paper duck.

Hold the head section as shown ( image 17 ) and gently pull it up to form the neck. Press the folds to hold it in position at an angle you prefer ( image 18 ).

Next, hold the pointed tip and pull it up to form the beak. Press the folds to hold it in position ( images 19 & 20 ).

Drawing a black dot on a blue paper.

Draw the eyes on both sides of the duck’s face with a black pen to complete the origami duck ( image 21 ).

Blue, green and turquoise paper ducks.

  • Use a square paper. The measurement of the paper must be exactly the same on all sides. I used 15cm by 15cm. Larger squares will make larger ducks and smaller ones will make smaller ducks.
  • The paper can be single sided . This is a single colored origami craft (unlike my origami koi fish here which is dual colored).  
  • Any type of paper will work for this craft so long as it can be folded and is firm enough to hold the shape. I used pre-cut origami paper, you can always make these ducks in any other craft paper or even wrapping papers.

  • Decorate - Place them on shelves at home or in your kids rooms. You can also use these origami ducks to decorate your table setting by placing them on plates or scattering them across the table for a cute and playful ambiance. They can also be stringed into a garland and hung in a room for themed events or celebrations.
  • Educational tools - If you're a teacher or parent, you can use these origami ducks as a creative teaching tool. They can be part of a lesson on origami, animals, or even as a visual aid for storytelling.
  • Photography props - Use the ducks as props for photography. They can add a playful element to photos, especially if you're capturing images of kids or pets.
  • Decorative elements in crafts - Glue them onto greeting cards, scrapbooks, or mixed media art pieces as decorative elements.
  • Mobiles - Create a hanging mobile with multiple origami ducks. Hang them at varying lengths from a frame or a mobile hanger for a delightful, kinetic display.

How to make an easy origami duck

Make this beautiful origami duck following our step-by-step origami tutorial! Grab a piece of 15 x 15cm paper and fold your own origami duck.

Holly Spanner

Learn how to make an origami duck with our easy-to-follow step-by-step photo tutorial! This easy origami model captures a duck as he’s splashing around in the pond, or, if you prefer, fold the wings down so that he’s swimming around peacefully, without a care in the world. This model will actually float on water, too!

We have plenty of other bird origami tutorials too, if you want to try something different.

What do I need to create an origami duck?

You really only need some origami paper and your hands! (And our easy tutorial of course). This project works well with double-sided origami paper, with a different colour or pattern on each side. This means when you fold, using our tutorial below, you will showcase both sides of the origami paper.

This origami paper pack features eight different bird prints reproduced from Japanese woodblocks in the ukiyo-e style of art, each with a coordinating solid colour on the reverse. The paper is slightly larger, 20 x 20cm, so you can use it for more complicated designs, too. The bird illustrations are gorgeous, and although you only get 48 sheets in a pack, we think it's worth the money - just look at the mandarin ducks!

How to make an origami duck

How to make an origami duck - completed origami duck, image 2

You will need:

  • Origami paper

Start with a 15 x 15cm piece of square paper. For the purpose of this tutorial, we are using a double-sided sheet of paper which is orange on one side and yellow on the other. Fold in half along the diagonal.

How to make an origami duck – step 1d

Fold one side of the paper up, leaving a 15mm (1.5cm) pleat at the top.

How to make an origami duck – step 2

Fold the paper in half along the vertical and re-open.

How to make an origami duck – step 3a

Fold one side down to meet the vertical crease you just made in the previous step.

How to make an origami duck – step 4

Fold the tip up as shown.

How to make an origami duck – step 5

Repeat for the other side – fold the other side down to meet the vertical crease.

How to make an origami duck – step 6

Fold the tip up to mirror the other side.

How to make an origami duck – step 7

Turn the model over. Fold a small triangle down at the top (about 2cm).

How to make an origami duck – step 8a

Fold the tip of the triangle up again, making a small pleat. This will be the duck’s beak! This bit may be a little fiddly due to the small size of the beak, so using a cocktail stick may help.

How to make an origami duck – step 9

Fold the model in half. Rotate the model 90 degrees anti-clockwise.

How to make an origami duck – step 10a

Fold the two wings either side up – you can fold them down again later, but we need the wings out the way to make the neck in the next step.

How to make an origami duck - step 11a

Fold the neck up so that it sits at a 90-degree angle to the body. Open the model up as you fold the neck up, so that there is a piece of neck either side of the body. This is called an outside reverse fold.

How to make an origami duck - step 12b

Fold the points on the bottom of your origami duck inwards. This will allow your duck to sit up by itself (or float if you decide to put it in water!).

How to make an origami duck - step 13a

Fold the head down, using another outside reverse fold, so that it is positioned at a 90-degree angle to the neck. The two sides of the head should sit either side of the head.

How to make an origami duck - step 14

Manipulate the beak so that it points upwards. To do this, gently pull it into position, then crisp the creases using a bone folder or ruler.

How to make an origami duck - step 15

Fold the tail down, so that it lines up with the edge of the wing.

How to make an origami duck - step 16

Open up the tail to reveal a square-diamond shape.

How to make an origami duck - step 17

Fold the bottom of this square diamond up, aligning the bottom edge with the top edge (i.e., fold in half along the horizontal).

How to make an origami duck - step 18

Fold the tail back on itself by folding in half along the vertical.

How to make an origami duck - step 19

Pull the tail up and out (go gently), then press the creases to secure in place.

How to make an origami duck - step 20

Tidy up your origami duck’s derriere by folding each side inwards.

How to make an origami duck - step 21a

Finally, fold the wings down (or leave them up if you prefer) to complete your origami duck!

This paper plate duck craft is so easy you can have your preschooler (or preschool classroom!) create their very own. I love this craft because it’s fun and easy, and ignites their creativity.

Below you’ll find a step by step guide to show you how I created this craft with my kids and then you can create them however your little would like!

Paper plate crafts are one of my favorites to do with my kids because paper plates are easy to find and inexpensive — the best plates for crafts are the extra cheap, flimsy ones from the dollar store.

They are also versatile and forgiving.

You can make a mistake and simply start over, or you can make an entire family of beautiful ducks at home without breaking the bank.

Here is a great article about how important creativity is in the classroom. I know we don’t need an excuse to add fun crafts into our lives, but I like to add this just in case you need further convincing. Learn more about creative thinking.

This fun paper plate horse craft is easy to make and ends up looking adorable, it’s a great way to work on those tiny hand muscles to prepare for writing someday, and work on their creative muscles so they can flourish as they grow.

You can add in extra fine motor skills by giving them a little foam makeup applicator to paint their paper plate craft with. It gives their hands a different way to interact with the paint.

My kids are always putting their unique spin on these, and I loved seeing what they could create.

Here is where you can grab your printable template so you can have it ready!

I love to put crafts on their windowsills, or bureau, or along their shelves in their rooms. My kids love when they can decorate their rooms with their own creativity.

We talk about our favorite parts of the day every night before bed, and they often bring up their crafts, because they’re surrounded by them, and we talk about how much fun they were.

They love being surrounded by things they’ve created with their hands, and I love how proud they are of their artwork.

This easy paper plate duck craft for toddlers is a great activity to do when you introduce farm animals in your homeschool or preschool-pair it with your paper plate horse craft. It’s also great every day — what kid doesn’t love this quacky fella?

My favorite part about this paper plate duck craft is you can make it as unique to your child as you want. This is all just a way to spark that creativity. You can make it green with a white beak, or look like whatever kind of duck your child loves. The sky is the limit!

Some ideas for changing things up is finding different breeds of ducks and trying to make a similar craft, or picking their favorite colors!

Give them free rein to be creative! Once everything is glued down, they can proudly display their masterpiece on the mantle, or make them a fun tabletop decoration for a themed party.

My favorite decorations are the ones my kids made. The cool thing about these little crafts is you can make them every year if you want, or you can remake them like 30 times in a day, like my youngest always asks.

And I LOVE how they can decorate their rooms every season with the crafts they created.

Before diving in, let’s get excited about making a duck! Talk with your kids about how cute and funny ducks are, go to a local park and sit down and watch the ducks, and ask them if they’d like to create one of their own.

You can even show them pictures or get them a duck book to get them inspired. Here is a great duck book you can probably find at your local library! I loved this book as a child.

How to make a paper plate duck step by step

If you’d like a printable version of these instructions, scroll to the bottom.

Put down some newspaper to help reduce the mess.

Grab all your materials and let’s go.

Take the paper plate and have your child paint it using the lemon yellow acrylic paint.

Let them get creative with their painting and encourage them to cover the entire plate. This step is sure to be messy, but it’s all part of the fun.

You might need to take a few deep breaths and find your composure, but remember everything is cleanable.

Paint your paper plate yellow this is the ducks face

As your plate dries, it’s time to cut out the duck face shapes. I’ve provided you with a handy template that shows you which colors to use and how to cut out each shape. Take your time and make sure you cut them out neatly.

print out your duck face shapes with this handy printable. You'll see a piece of paper with shapes drawn for you to cut out to make your paper plate look like a duckface

After cutting out the pieces, you’ll have some cardboard hair. Paint this to match your duck’s face, since that is made of feathers, and so is this little hair tuft on top of his head.

A cool idea my son had for this was to add actual feathers to the top. SO MANY WAYS TO DO THESE CRAFTS! I love it.

Using a black marker or pen, draw the duck’s eyes into the white cardboard paper.

Use the image below to help you decide how to use the pieces you removed.

Cut out all the pieces you need from paper and paint the hair and eyes

Next up, we are gluing all these pieces down.

Arrange them on the paper plate the way you like, and then glue each piece down. Make sure everything is aligned properly and press down firmly.

glue the pieces to your duck

Perhaps this is good enough for you. It definitely should have been good enough for me, but alas, here we are.

You can cut out a curved shape with a flat base from the orange construction paper to create eyelids. Attach to the top of the eyes.

lets add some eyelids

I might have made a mistake here. But I have to live with it. Once everything is attached, make a border around the edges and around the outside of each piece you glued down.

Don’t forget to add a line for its mouth!

outline the edges to give definition

Here is your completed duck! Yay! You did it!

Paper Plate Duck craft for kids

You did it! You created a really adorable paper plate duck!

If your littles are old enough to use scissors without cutting off their sister’s ponytail, feel free to let them take the reins with this craft, and see where they end up with it.

Understand there will be a lot of cleaning up at the end of this, just make your peace with that now!

Every duck can be different, and they can still be perfect!

How to make a paper plate duck step by step

If you'd like a printable version of these instructions, scroll to the bottom.

Put down some newspaper to help reduce the mess.

Grab all your materials and let's go.

Take the paper plate and have your child paint it using the lemon yellow acrylic paint.

Let them get creative with their painting and encourage them to cover the entire plate. This step is sure to be messy, but it's all part of the fun.

You might need to take a few deep breaths and find your composure, but remember everything is cleanable.

Paint your paper plate yellow this is the ducks face

As your plate dries, it's time to cut out the duck face shapes. I've provided you with a handy template that shows you which colors to use and how to cut out each shape. Take your time and make sure you cut them out neatly.

print out your duck face shapes with this handy printable. You'll see a piece of paper with shapes drawn for you to cut out to make your paper plate look like a duckface

After cutting out the pieces, you'll have some cardboard hair. Paint this to match your duck's face, since that is made of feathers, and so is this little hair tuft on top of his head.

A cool idea my son had for this was to add actual feathers to the top. SO MANY WAYS TO DO THESE CRAFTS! I love it.

Using a black marker or pen, draw the duck's eyes into the white cardboard paper.

Use the image below to help you decide how to use the pieces you removed.

Cut out all the pieces you need from paper and paint the hair and eyes

Next up, we are gluing all these pieces down.

Arrange them on the paper plate the way you like, and then glue each piece down. Make sure everything is aligned properly and press down firmly.

glue the pieces to your duck

Perhaps this is good enough for you. It definitely should have been good enough for me, but alas, here we are.

You can cut out a curved shape with a flat base from the orange construction paper to create eyelids. Attach to the top of the eyes.

lets add some eyelids

I might have made a mistake here. But I have to live with it. Once everything is attached, make a border around the edges and around the outside of each piece you glued down.

Don't forget to add a line for its mouth!

outline the edges to give definition

Here is your completed duck! Yay! You did it!

How to Make a Duck Beak Out of Paper

Are you looking for a creative way to make your new paper craft project stand out? Have you ever considered using a duck beak as the perfect finishing touch? Duck beaks are eye-catching and unique, offering a playful and imaginative detail that really captures attention. Not only that but making one from paper is surprisingly easy – so if you’re feeling a little crafty, then this post is just what you need! 

Using items you can find around the house, crafting a duck beak is an easy, fun activity that adds a unique touch to any project. With just some simple supplies like thick cardstock paper and construction paper in bright colors, basic arts and crafts skills, plus our step by step guide here, anyone can create their own duck beak! Read on to learn how to make a duck beak out of paper!

What is a Duck Beak?

A duck beak is the distinctive, pointed bill that all ducks have. It’s not just there for looks – it serves many purposes, such as helping to filter food out of water and being used as a tool for picking up small items. They come in different shapes, sizes and colors depending on the type of duck. You can make a duck beak out of paper to use in a variety of ways, such as adding it to a costume, decoration or even as part of a fun DIY game for kids.

What Will You Need?

Thick cardstock paper in a coordinating color to your project:.

Using cardstock paper instead of regular paper is recommended because it provides a sturdier and more durable beak. You can choose any color that coordinates with your project, or you could even mix and match colors for a more playful look.

Construction Paper in Bright Colors:

Construction paper is perfect for adding some vibrant color to your duck beak. You can also use tissue paper or crepe paper for a more textured effect.

A good pair of scissors is essential for any crafting project, especially when working with thicker materials like cardstock. Make sure to use sharp scissors for clean and precise cuts.

Glue or Tape:

To hold your duck beak together, you will need some glue or tape. You can use regular white glue or double-sided tape for convenience.

Markers or Paint:

For adding details and personalizing your duck beak, you can use markers or paint in various colors. This is optional but adds a fun touch to your finished product.

Once you have gathered your supplies, you are ready to get started.

10 Easy Steps on How to Make a Duck Beak Out of Paper:

Step 1. cut a circle:.

Start by cutting a large circle out of the cardstock paper. This will be the base of your duck beak, so you want to make sure that it is big enough to fit comfortably over whatever project you are using it on. Be careful not to make the circle too large; you want it to be proportional and not look out of place.

If you don’t have cardstock paper on hand, you can use regular paper and reinforce it by gluing multiple layers together. The thickness of the paper will ensure that your duck beak is sturdy and holds its shape.

Step 2. Cut Out a Pointed Shape:

Next, take a piece of construction paper and cut out a pointed shape that will serve as the tip of your duck beak. You can use any color you like but try to choose one that is bright and vibrant to really add some life and personality to your craft. Try experimenting with different shapes and sizes until you find one that looks just right.

You can also trace the outline of the circle onto the construction paper and cut around it to ensure a perfect fit. It’s always a good idea to double-check the sizing before gluing anything in place. The pointed shape should be slightly smaller than the circle so that it can fit inside.

Step 3. Glue on the Construction Paper Tip:

Once you have your pointed tip cut out, use some hot glue or a strong adhesive to attach it to the center of your cardstock circle, making sure that it is centered and straight. This will be the front of your duck beak, so make sure that it looks how you want before moving on to the next step. Use your pen or marker to add some additional details and decorations, if desired.

There are also alternative options to hot glue, such as double-sided tape or regular school glue. Depending on the age of the crafter and their level of skills, choose the best adhesive for your project.

Step 4. Cut Out Smaller Circles:

Next, you will need to cut out a number of smaller circles in various bright colors of construction paper. The exact number will depend on how big your duck beak is, but you want enough that there are several layers when they are all attached together. Try choosing a few different shapes and sizes for an interesting look and feel.

It’s important to note that the size and number of circles may vary depending on the desired look and size of your duck beak. Feel free to experiment with different sizes until you find what works best for you. You can also use stickers or pre-made shapes instead of cutting out your own circles.

Step 5. Glue the Paper Circles Together:

Once you have all of your circles cut out, it’s time to start attaching them together into one cohesive piece. Start by gluing the largest circle onto the bottom center of your duck beak tip, and then work your way outwards, gluing each circle onto the one below it in a circular pattern. You may need to use some additional glue or adhesive along the way to ensure that everything stays firmly in place.

You can also mix and match different colored circles to create a fun and unique look. Don’t be afraid to get creative and experiment with different patterns and designs! The more layers you add, the more depth and texture your duck beak will have.

Step 6. Add Details:

Once all of your paper circles are glued together, take a moment to add any final touches or details that you want. This could include adding lines or patterns with your pen or marker, painting on spots or stripes with acrylic paint, or even sewing a few embellishments into place if you want something more permanent.

Although adding details is completely optional, it can really add depth and dimension to your finished duck beak. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to let your creative side shine!

Step 7. Attach the Duck Beak to Your Project:

Now that your duck beak is fully assembled and decorated how you like, all that’s left is to attach it to your project. Whether you are using this for a card, a hat, or some other crafty creation, you need to simply hot glue it in place, and you’ll be ready to go. Ensure that it is centered and sits how you want, and then set your project aside to let the glue dry.

It’s important to note that if you are using hot glue, you may want to let an adult handle this step or supervise closely. Alternatively, other types of adhesive can be used such as double-sided tape or regular school glue.

Step 8. Try Different Styles of Duck Beaks:

Once you have the basics down, why not experiment with different styles and shapes of duck beaks? Try using square or triangular paper instead of circles or even try out a few different colors to see how they look. The possibilities are endless, so feel free to get creative with it! You can even add some feathers or other embellishments to really make your duck beak stand out.

But if you’re happy with your first duck beak, don’t hesitate to make more and use them in a variety of different projects. They are great for adding a touch of whimsy and fun to any craft.

Step 9. Add Accessories and Decorations:

Another great way to customize your duck beaks is by adding fun accessories or decorations. You can try using googly eyes, buttons, pom-poms, feathers, or any other materials that you like. This will help add some extra personality and charm to your creations, so why not try it? You can even use these duck beaks as the foundation for a costume or dress-up piece, adding wings and a tail to turn it into a full duck costume!

The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to crafting with duck beaks. So have fun and let your imagination run wild!  Continue exploring different materials, shapes, and sizes to see what kinds of unique and adorable duck beaks you can create. With a little creativity, anything is possible! 

Step 10. Have Fun with Your Duck Beaks:

The most important thing when making duck beaks from paper is simply having fun with it! Whether you are creating them for yourself or for someone else as a gift, just let your creativity take over and enjoy the process of making something unique and beautiful. Happy crafting!

By following these steps, you can easily create beautiful, customized duck beaks out of paper that is perfect for any project or craft. Whether you want to use them on cards, hats, or other creations, just be sure to have fun and let your imagination run wild as you experiment with different shapes, sizes, colors, and accessories. And who knows – maybe you’ll even discover the next big trend in crafting!

5 Additional Tips and Tricks:

1. Carefully measure and cut out two paper circles using a ruler, compass, or other measuring tools.

2. Glue the circles together around the edges to create a cone shape for your duck beak.

3. Cut a small notch out of the base of your cone, where it will attach to your duck’s face, and then glue it in place securely.

4. If you want to make your duck beak more life-like, you can also bend the paper to create a curved shape that follows the contours of a real duck’s beak. Simply press down firmly on the beak with a shaping tool, like a pen or pencil, until it has the desired shape.

5. If you want to get creative, you can add details or patterns to your beak using paint or other craft supplies. For example, you could try adding some color and texture by painting on some small feathers or decorating the base of your duck’s beak with a fun pattern or design.

With these tips and tricks, you should be able to easily make a cute and realistic-looking duck beak out of paper for your next crafting project!

5 Precautions You Can Take:

1. Before you start, gathering all your materials is important. To make a duck beak out of paper, you will need scissors or a craft knife, construction paper in various colors and textures, double-sided tape or glue, and feathers for decoration.

2. Avoid using thin, flimsy paper for your beak. Instead, opt for thicker, more durable construction paper that will hold its shape better and is less likely to tear easily.

3. When cutting out the beak form, ensure you leave at least an inch of space around it so that you can attach it comfortably to your head or mask. If possible, try to cut out two pieces of beak material in case one is damaged or torn during the crafting process.

4. When attaching the beak to your mask or costume headpiece, start by securing one side with double-sided tape or glue and then pressing down on the other side to ensure good adhesion. You may need a few extra pieces of tape or glue along the edges to hold everything securely in place.

5. Take the time to decorate your paper beak with feathers or other fun embellishments, such as rhinestones, glitter, or sequins. This extra step will help make your duck costume really stand out and look authentic!

If you follow these simple guidelines and put in a little bit of time and effort, you should be able to create a beautiful and realistic-looking duck beak that perfectly complements your costume this Halloween. Good luck!
