How to fold a Christmas Tree Napkin

Watch more with these video collections:

If you’re looking for a few modern, evergreen-themed decoration ideas for the holidays, check out this easy yet impressive-looking Christmas Tree Napkin Fold from Instructables. There’s also step by step instructions.

All you need are perfectly square green* napkins (I used 20″ x 20″ ones, but any 16″x16″ and up size will work great). I prefer to use 100% natural fibers like cotton or linen, but using a poly/cotton blend won’t make any difference to the success of the folds.

I like to iron my napkins before I get to folding. This is optional, but results in a crisper looking tree.

*These would still look great in any other color!
