DIY Origami Christmas Tree

Hey All!! How was your Thanks giving break? We had a very relaxing break as we didn't do much other than socializing. During the break we (me and mini me) tried to make few Ornaments and Christmas trees.

Today is the first tutorial in the series of 5 DIY Christmas Trees we crafted during the break.

My little one has new found interest in Origami, this tree was an attempt to make Origami with her :) All that you need for this project is a square paper and scissor.

I will try my best to explain, hopefully photo helps where words fail.

Step 1 :- Fold the paper diagonally (corner to corner on both side), crease well and unfold.
Fold the paper across, crease well and unfold.


Step 2 :- Using creases push two corners inside to make a flat square base.


Step 3: Fold the uppermost outer flaps in, to meet the center line and crease well. Make sure open end is at the bottom. Repeat the same on the other side.


Step 4: This is a little tricky Step.  Open the Flaps, Push the Corner inside so that each Flap ends up into two flaps.



Step 5:  Chop off the bottom Triangle to make it a proper triangle.


Step 6 : using scissor, make slits on either sides.


Step 7 : Fold The individual Cuts in to small Triangles on all 8 sides and you have beautiful Origami Tree ready.



One more group picture :)


I couldn't stop at three :) I wanted a little tall one, so tried one with wrapping paper. Loved the red tree but it was too wide.

so, instead of stopping at the last step as mentioned above, I repeated the step 7 for every side. That gives you 16 arms instead of 8.



And one more group Pic :)
