Introduction: Folded Paper Tree Garland

These are so simple and quick to make! I originally made them for cards and tags, but this year I thought it would be fun and festive to make a garland.

Step 1: What You Need...

You need:

- double-sided paper (unless you like a monochromatic look)

- a circle punch (or a circular object to trace and cut out)

For garland:

- hole punch

- jute / twine / ribbon of your choice (I used jute)


- glue (if you want to glue your tree flat)

Step 2: Just Four Easy Steps...

1. Punch (or trace/cut) circles & cut in half

2. Fold as shown in picture (there's no real measurement here)

3. Punch holes in the top of all your trees

4. Thread your jute / twine / ribbon through the holes (I tied a knot after each tree to keep them in place)

You're done! Now just string your garland around a banister, tree, greenery, wall, doorway, window...

Step 3: Alternate Ideas...

These are some other projects I've done with them. I just thought it might be fun to string a few together and wrap around a gift or neck of a wine bottle. I think I'll give that a try. Would love to see what you do with them!
