The beauty of this craft is that it is a thousand times easier to make than it looks, and it can be completed while sipping wine and watching your favourite Christmas movie – now that is my idea of an ideal Christmas craft.
On the other hand, if you have a household of Halflings, and are looking for a way to keep them entertained on a dreary Tuesday, this will also work a treat for that (although maybe without the wine – depends on how your Tuesday is going I suppose). Even the littlest ones can join in – I usually put them in charge of adding the stickers – a sufficiently important while simultaneously sufficiently easy task.
What you will need:
Green square napkins – paper if like us you go for cheap and cheerful, linen if you’re a bit posh
- First, fold it twice to get a smaller square
Then, fold up the corner of each layer to the top and be sure to leave one inch between each fold.
Flip the whole thing over, holding the folds.
Fold both sides to the centre. Remember to align the top of each panel to form a triangular space at the top of the napkin.
Flip back the napkin (remember to hold it tight so it doesn’t unfold).
Fold the upper layer to the top to form a peak of your Christmas tree. Hide lower layers’ tips underneath the upper folds.
Now decorate with stickers
