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

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

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

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

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.
