Add a modern-minimalist touch to your holiday decor with these DIY paper Christmas trees.
These folded paper trees are easier than they look thanks to a downloadable template. Make one or a whole forrest and add a punchy, modern touch to your holiday home.
Download the template and print it out onto a an extra piece of paper (sturdy paper works best for tracing). Cut out template and trace onto colored paper. Make small marks where the fold lines intersect the sides, these will guide you later.
Cut out traced shape. For the large tree, you will need to trace and cut three of these.
Using a credit card (or bone folder) and ruler score the fold lines (these are marked by dashed lines on the template), then fold accordion style as shown below. Repeat with all three tree pieces.
Glue the inner folds together as shown below. Repeat for all three tree pieces.
Glue end flaps together to join all three tree pieces.
Enjoy your finished tree.
