Dangling fir trees – light for hanging, and impressive when you look at them.

The difficult part is at the beginning, steps (1) and (4), (5) and (6), where the folded part has to be opened and folded inside. This is repeated three more times. When you are ready with the one side, turn the form and repeat the steps again.Fold a fir tree Fold a fir tree

    Very cool; I was scared when I read “The difficult part is at the beginning,” but it was actually quite easy and I always mess up paper folding. Thanks!

    Yay! I just finished mine. I used a turquoise metallic piece of 12 x 12 scrapbook paper and it is so very cute and festive! Now I have to make a forest. I can’t wait to experiment with other papers. Thank you so much for sharing this.

    Excellent for busy teachers who are willing to entertain the children while learning and who would also like to have fun themselves.
    Thank you

    Yo los hice y para los picos de mi pino le puse brillantina de colores mezclada con resistol blanco, después me di cuenta de que en México ya venden un papel con brillantina con el cual estos pinos quedan super lindos.

    Thank you for sharing the great project! This is the best origami Christmas tree folding ever! Same as Diana, I used slightly metallic evergreen scrapbooking paper, but not 12×12, I used 8.5×11, then made 8.5×8.5 square. I made a star on the top by cutting seven sides of the paper(and leave one side), flipping it back. Then I glued on the 1 1/2″ wooden wheel parts, polycrylic coating to make them durable. How cute!! I made it a lot and gave them to my friends as a holiday gift. They all love it.

    This was so much fun to make. I used heavy paper the 1st time & it was a little hard to fold. The 2nd one I made I just used regular white (copy) paper & it turned out perfect. Can’t wait to get some green paper & make these. Thank you for sharing.
