How to fold Christmas tree napkins

They look lovely in variety of colours, paper napkins work just as well as fabric, and the best thing about them is that they’re so easy to make.

Here’s how:

Step 1. Fold a square napkin in half.


Step 2. Fold it in half again.


Step 3. Pull up each layer of the napkin placing the layers with even gaps between each other.


Step 4. Flip over.


Step 5. Bring in the two corners so they form a straight horizontal line along the back.


Step 6. Flip over so that the side with the corners is facing up.


Step 7. Pull up each corner leaving even gaps.


Step 8. Tuck each corner into the pocket above.


Step 9. Decorate!


Et voila!
