These modern 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 for your convenience. See my full disclosure policy here.
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.
I mean. They’re pretty great.
AND – you can print off these little Christmas trees, put them together, and in just a few minutes you can have a whole forest of black and white trees for your mantel or Christmas party centerpieces.
For each tree you will need:
- TWO copies of one of my Christmas tree printables printed on white cardstock. You can get it in the confetti dot pattern, diagonal stripes, or thick stripes.
- Scissors or paper trimmer
Start by cutting out all four triangles. Two have lines cut out of the tops of the trees, and two have lines cut out of the bottoms.
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 out the slits on both tress. Finally, slide the two slits over each other to create your three-dimensional tree! Wahoo!
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.
