DIY Christmas Tree Napkin Fold

Here's an easy way to dazzle your family
 and friends.
OK, maybe that's a tad too exuberant, but I
 do love this easy napkin fold that I've been 
using for all my table settings in December.
This is a good job for the kids and they will 
have just as much fun folding napkins as 
you do. Again...too exuberant. You can even 
embellish them with a little star on top and 
a piece of a fat pretzel for the stem.
Ha! Fun right!? 
Green napkins are great, but you can use
any color or even a print.
Here we go:
 These dark green napkins have a holly 
design. I found them at a thrift store this week
 for 25¢ and knew just how I'd be using them. 
 Fold you napkin in half.
 Fold in half again to make a square.
 Start to fold the layers up leaving about
 a ½" space between layers.
 Keep folding up.
 When you are done, flip the napkin over.
 This is the back side.
Fold one side of the napkin over the back. 
It should line up like this. 
 Fold over the other side.
 Now flip the napkin back over.
 Now you will fold the tree shape.
 Just fold over the pointy tips.
Tuck each pointy tip under the fold above.
Keep folding and tucking.
Now fold in the bottom. 
I hope you enjoy and use these!
