These modern 3D Christmas trees are simple to make – just print, cut, and glue. Make a whole forest in just minutes! I originally shared this project at Craftaholics Anonymous. This post contains affiliate links, which help to support this site when you make purchases through my links.
Last week I shared some fun black and white glossy marbled Christmas trees, and today I have another black and white Christmas tree craft, but this time they are made out of paper!
They also happen to be free printables, which means they are basically the easiest things ever to make. Seriously so easy!
And since they are just paper they are super inexpensive too, which makes them a great way to add a modern festive element to your mantel or Christmas party centerpieces..
How to Make Your Own Modern 3D Paper Christmas Trees
As I mentioned, these trees are super easy to put together, but I will still walk you through each step below. First, gather up a few supplies.
3D Black and White Christmas Tree Supplies
- White Cardstock
- Scissors or paper trimmer

Step One. Print.
Start off by printing out your black and white trees on nice heavyweight cardstock. You will need to print off two copies for each tree you want to make.
Step Two. Cut.
When you have your tree printed out, start by cutting out all four triangles along the outside edges.
At this point, you should have two trees/triangles with lines through the of the tops of the trees and two with lines through the bottoms.
Next, glue the two trees with lines on the tops together so you have a double-sided triangle. Do the same with the other two triangles.
Next, cut slits along the lines marked through the tops and bottoms of the double-sided trees.
Step Three. Assemble.
Finally, slide the two slits over each other to create your three-dimensional tree. Now your trees can stand on their own. Yay!
I’m a fan of the simple black and white designs, but you could also use the printables as templates to cut trees from your favorite cardstock!
