Christmas Tree Origami Decoration

To continue on this 31 days of Christmas I chose a christmas tree decoration for your home. My husband and I are starting to decorate our home for the holiday season. This weekend my niece is coming over and we are going out and cutting down our own Christmas tree. The first year we did this there was like a foot of snow on the ground and my father and I were not prepared. I had to cut down the tree because he has a bad back. I didn’t bring snowpants or a good jacket and was covered in snow by the end. It was worth it though. Now we cut down our own tree every year. I love making decorations that can last a while but I also love using what I have around the house. This uses origami paper and scissors. I actually used construction paper instead. You can make this now with a piece of paper and scissors. Fast, easy, and beautiful. There is nothing more satisfying than making something out of nothing. I hope you enjoy making this as much as I did!
