This Christmas tree made out of a napkin is so easy, even I could do this!
This tree could be used at your table or, if you choose to stand it up, it could be used as a tabletop decoration.
If you’re going to decorate the napkin with craft jewels, this project is not for little children because the pieces are very small.
If you wish, you can leave the star, decorations, and corks out of the project. The folded napkin looks very effective without adornments.
Have a try and see what you think.
- Green napkins
- Glue, if required for decorations
- Place the napkin so all the opening corners are at the bottom.
- Take the top leaf and fold over almost to the top, leaving a half-inch gap.
- Do the same with the rest of the leaves, leaving a half-inch gap between each of them.
- Turn it over.
- With your thumbnail, mark a line from the top to the bottom.
- Fold each side over according to that mark.
- The top of the napkin, as you’re looking at it now, should be in a point shape.
- Turn the napkin over again, putting the point shape at the bottom.
- Take the top leaf and fold it straight up.
- Take the next leaf, but don’t fold it; roll it up under the next leaf.
- Do the same with the other two leaves.
- Fold the bottom piece under and tuck it under a flap.
- If you wish, you can stick a star and beads on to decorate.
- If you wish the tree to stand up, open it up at the bottom and slide a cork in as a tree stand.
There is your Christmas tree napkin!
