Looking to add some extra pizazz to your table this Christmas? A super fun way to do it is with Japanese-style Origami Christmas Tree Napkins. They are easy and fun to make with the result a stunning addition to your Christmas table display.

Paper napkins are easiest to use but you can also try cloth napkins. Whichever you use, don’t forget to include some extra napkins for your Christmas guests as some will likely want to keep your decorative napkin intact to take home.

and some Small Yellow Paper Squares

Make Sure the open-side of the Napkin is down

Fold One Piece of the Napkin Paper Up

Fold Other Pieces Up by Adding Extra Spaces

Flip the Green Napkin & Place it on its Side
