DIY Origami Christmas Trees (Step by Step)
- Letter-sized paper in shades of green, blues and white.
Tip – you can buy the large square sheets of paper to make the big trees.
Fold top corner of the paper to align with the opposing side of the paper.
2. Cut the bottom of the paper off so that you are left with a square paper folded into a triangle.
3. Fold that in half into a smaller triangle.
4. Open the triangles and fold down to create a square x 2
5. Open the sides of the squares to create a tall triangle x 4
6. Trim off the bottom triangle.
7. Cut 3 rows on each side, spaced evenly.
8. Fold down the bottom three flaps
Here’s a great video showing how to make origami Christmas tress as well.
For the larger paper, we cut 4 rows on each side to create one more tier of the tree.
