Make festive decorations in minutes with our top 10 DIY Christmas crafts. Don't forget about the little ones, get them making their own festive fun with our top 10 Christmas crafts for kids.


For this craft you will need:

  • green square paper or fabric napkins
  • gold card
  • mini pegs
  • glue
  • string, name tags and small tree decorations (optional)

Step 1: Folding the Napkin

Lay a green napkin in front of you so it looks like a diamond. Fold the left and right corners into the middle at such an angle that it creates a point at the top.

Step 2: Shaping the Christmas Tree

Fold the bottom flap upwards to the middle to make a long triangle shape, like a Christmas tree. Turn over so the flat side is facing up.

Step 3: Adding the Star and Securing

Cut out some stars from the card and attach to the flat side of a peg using glue. Clip the peg to the top of the napkin to act as a star on the top of the tree – this will also hold the folded napkin together.


Step 4: Decorating and Final Touches

Drape string around the napkin trees, if you like, and clip a name tag under the peg to use the napkins as place settings. You can also ‘decorate’ the napkins by scattering over small tree decorations.
