Learn how to fold a simple origami Christmas tree with a star to decorate the top. This origami Christmas tree is possibly the easiest to make, ever.

You can make the tree one color or layer different colors for a fun wrapped effect.

This one will stand up if you wrap it with more layers. As the final layer serves as a stand.

Both the tree (plain version) and the star are traditional Japanese models. Yes, they require a dab of glue. Traditional origami models often use glue here and there, contrary to what most people think!

Design: Traditional
Level: ★★☆☆☆

You will need:

  • Tree: 1 sheet of square paper, 15 x 15 cm
    (more if you want to layer it)
  • Star: 2 sheets of square paper that are half the size of the paper used for the tree (7.5 x 7.5 cm)

The small trees in the video are made with 7.5 x 7.5 cm and the star is made from 3.75 x 3.75 cm

I really like this simple origami tree. Even though it does stand up, I feel like it’s better for sticking flat onto greetings cards.
