Origami Tree

Original model created on 1/10/2017 - Published on 13/10/2017

Origami Tree instructions and tutorial

Learn how to make a simple but beautiful origami tree. This DIY paper tree can stand up, and it is quick to make, so you can fold a whole forest of origami trees!

This easy origami standing tree is a variation of the standing mushroom that I showed in the last video. The way to make it stand is different, the tree has a slightly rounded trunk.

The initial horizontal fold can be made at different heights, and you can round the branches of your tree in very different ways, so you can make trees that look quite different.

This origami tree is very simple and easy, but I like the fact that you can make it stand up!

Important: this origami tree is an original origami model designed by Stéphane Gigandet. Please do not publish diagrams, videos, tutorials, instructions etc. that show how to fold this origami tree, and instead link to this video or embed it. Thank you!

How to make an origami Tree

Here are the step-by-step instructions to fold a Tree (photo diagram and/or video).

Tree - step 1

1. This origami tree can stand.

If you fold the origami tree, or any of my origami models, please send me pictures so that I can show them in future videos.

I am still receiving many cool pictures of models from my book Origami for Halloween: https://www.amazon.com/Origami-Halloween-creative-including-beginners/dp/1977999204/

It’s not Halloween anymore but the book is still selling. It can be a nice Christmas gift idea, especially if you like Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas!
