There is so much to love about a winter wonderland: the holiday magic, the snow, and the trees. You can bring this wonderment indoors and into your home decor by creating a mini pine tree forest with these DIY Paper Christmas Trees. They’re so easy to assemble and make great accents on your entryway, mantle, or dinner table.

I first shared this project over on Babble, and my free printable Paper Christmas Trees template includes three different free-standing, 3-D tree designs (with “snow” and various shades of green).

TO MAKE: First download the file then print on white card stock. To create each tree b cut out the tree pieces and slit where shown. One piece will be slit from the top to halfway down, and the other from halfway to the bottom. Fit the two pieces together to create the free-standing tree.

If you’re looking for a Christmas tree kids craft, your kiddos will love to decorate their paper Christmas trees by gluing on pom poms, plastic jewels, bells, stickers, yarn, etc. I would love to see how you use these trees in your home — share a photo of your creation on Instagram and tag @PagingSupermom.

These printable pine trees make it super-easy to create a mini forest that is the perfect, Christmas table runner.  Shown below are a Mod Pine Tree version that we shared earlier — we just can’t get enough of these freestanding, paper trees.
