Simple Origami Christmas Tree Tutorial

Simple Origami Christmas Tree
Simple Origami Christmas Tree With More Origami!

Learn how to fold a simple origami Christmas tree with a star to decorate the top. This origami Christmas tree is super easy and fun to make. You can make the tree one colour or layer different colours 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. It won’t hurt I promise. These simple origami trees are perfect for flat paper dioramas and collages, or they can be stood up in 3D origami Christmas scenes.

Design: Traditional
Level: ★★☆☆☆

Simple Origami Christmas Tree

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.
