Origami is a fun technique that both children and adults can master, as there are so many fun paper crafts you can make, from super simple ones to more difficult ones.

This Christmas tree craft is one of the easiest origami, so it can be used as an introduction to the technique.

Origami Christmas Tree

Although origami is essentially folding and not cutting, we feel the addition of a star, even though it’s not technically origami, makes this craft even more special.

Step 4

Turn the paper face down.

Bring the edges (top side of the plant) toward the center.

Step 5

You need to align both edges to the center.

Step 6

Run your fingers across the folds to make them crisp.

Step 7

Bring the bottom part up, folding them together to form a triangle.

Step 15

Flip it over (one side is the “pure triangle” and the other side has the lid, the lid side should be facing you).

Make a fold about 1/3 of the way up the stem (seen from the bottom of the triangle). Fold down.

Fold the bottom end of the triangle up.

Step 20

Make the folds sharp.

Step 21

All has been done! You have folded the origami Christmas tree.
