These paper Christmas trees will become a wonderful embellishment for your home in winter, especially at Christmas. Combine them with our paper houses to create a fairy Christmas mood! See also our collection of Christmas crafts for more craft ideas.

These Christmas trees are simple to make with our templates and step-by-step video tutorial below. To save your time, I recommend using a cutting machine, but you also can print the templates and cut them manually.

Use paper of different shades of green, white, gold, or any color you prefer. In any case, you will have fun with creativity and enjoy a beautiful craft made with your own hands. 

This tutorial includes templates for 30-cm / 12-inch and 20cm / 8-inch Christmas trees. But you can also make trees of different sizes. To do that, change the settings in your cutting machine or printer.
