I love simple things and decorations. If there are too many details in a design, it makes me feel distracted and irritated, since less is always more for me. But this approach can be a real problem when it comes to Christmas decorations. Some members of my family like more elaborate garnish, and that’s why I was in a need of something that will satisfy all of us at the same time. I really hope that I succeded by finding this simple idea for folding a dinner napkin.
Other Handimaniacs liked it so much, that we decided to make our own version of the tutorial. You’ll be surprised how quick and simple it is and how useful it can be when you’re in a hurry but need a stunning decoration for your Christmas table.
I like my folded Christmas Tree plain, without any additional decoration, but if it’s too much for you ;) you can always add something to it. One of the best additions is Tiny Bow, that you can stick to a peak of the tree. What else would you use to decorate it? We’ll be happy to hear something from you on our fan page!
What you need:
Supplies / ingredients:
- fabric napkin 45/45 cm
- tiny bow (optional)
- pin (optional)
To prepare this super simple fold, you need a perfectly square fabric napkin. First, fold it twice to get a smaller square.
Then, fold up each layer to the top and be sure to leave one inch between each fold.
Flip the whole thing over, holding the folds.
It’s time to fold both sides together. Remember to align the top of each panel to form a triangular space at the top of the napkin.
Flip back the napkin (remember to hold it tight so it doesn’t unfold). Fold the upper layer to the top to form a peak of your Christmas tree. Hide lower layers’ tips underneath the upper folds.
To add a finishing touch to your Christmas Tree Napkin Fold, you can decorate it with Tiny Bow, we featured few days ago. Simply pin it to the peak of the tree.
In the Christmas spirit already? ;)
