Hello Everyone, welcome to the uTry.it channel. This is Amy Tong. Today, I have an easy and festive tablescape to share with you. It’ll be the perfect table setting for your holiday party. Follow me to the kitchen and I’ll show you step-by-step on how to fold this Christmas Tree Napkin! First, we will need a green color square shaped napkin. Fold it in 1/2 and make a rectangle. Make sure the corners and edges are lined up with each other. Fold it 1 more time to make a smaller square. Make sure the openings of the napkins are facing toward yourself. Pick up the first layer of your napkin and fold it 3/4 of an inch right below the top corner. Gently press your napkin to create a crease. Pick up the second layer of your napkins and fold it 3/4 of an inch right below the first layer. Repeat with the third and the fourth layer of your napkin. Make sure to gently press the napkin to form the creases. The corner of each layer should be about 3/4 of an inch apart from each other. Place your left hand on top of the napkin and your right hand right below the napkin and flip it once. Next, pick up the left hand side of the corner and fold it towards the opposit direction. Make sure this line is perpendicular against the top corner. Next, pick up the right hand side corner and fold it towards the opposite direction. Make sure the horizontal lines are lined up with each other. Hold the napkin in between your palms and flip it once. Turn the napkin upside down so all the corners are facing toward yourself. Pick up the first layer and fold it towards the top corner. Pick up the second layer and tuck it underneath the first layer. Repeat with the third and fourth layers and the base. Apply gentle pressure on each fold to create the creases. Next, pick up the very first corner and tuck it underneath itself. To mimic the tree trunk, I’m using
a cinnamon stick. Not only that it looks realistic, it’s smelling amazing as well. To make it even more festive, I’m tying a little bow tie on to the cinnamon stick. You can use any Christmas color ribbon or a kitchen twine for the bow-tie. The ribbon or the twine should be about 1 foot long. Place the cinnamon stick in between the layers of your Christmas Tree Napkin. Next, place a gold star sticker on the top of your tree. I also found these Christmas Holly stickers in my local craft store. Last but not least, a little post-it for your guest’s name. Stick it onto the cinnamon stick and your Christmas tree napkin is all done! I hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial and the tips to make your Christmas dining table more festive!
