How to Fold a Cloth Napkin Like a Christmas Tree

A woman uses a cloth napkin to created a folded Christmas tree.

Stumped for what to do for your Christmas tablescape? Tired of boring old napkin holders? Well, one TikToker’s hack shows you how to fold a napkin like a Christmas tree, and it’ll bring your holiday spread to life.

Designer Slay Kanadikirik shared the genius trick on both her TikTok account and on her Instagram, and while you may think you’ll need to do some serious origami-level folding, making the cute napkin Christmas tree is actually fairly simple.

First, Kanadikirik folds the cloth into a perfect square. Then, she individually pulls back the edges of one corner to form a staggered group of ends. Next, she flips the napkin over and folds up the bottom half to reveal pockets that were created by staggering the edges. Finally, she folds the side over, flips the napkin back up, and pulls down the ends of the earlier crafted pockets, tucking them underneath one another. When she’s done, it looks like the perfect Christmas tree.

Now, will this likely require some practice? Sure, but it’s still a fairly easy fold. Plus, if you want a way to impress your family this holiday season, folding your cloth napkins into Christmas trees is definitely the way to do it.
