Though it looks tedious but if you get your hands on it, it is pretty simple!!! Try it out!!!!

The Kanzashi Christmas Tree is made from 2 types of Kanzashi fold (or TsuNami) petals, round tip and pointy tip. Watch these 2 petals making videos which I made to show you how to fold it. Perhaps you need to practice first before you can get a perfect fold for a start. Trust me, it is not as difficult as you may anticipate 🙂

  16. Beautiful ! I wanna do this. What is it made a base? This is ordinary tissue paper/paper ribbon or what ? Please comment, because I love it and I can’t wait to making this.
    Sorry for mistakes, I’m from Poland and it’s Google translation 😉

    • Do you mean the base of the pot? I don’t quite get your question, sorry!

      • I don’t mean circle base/tube. I wanna know what is it on this pot. What for small cable tie ? Did you wrap in paper ribbon on the base ? Sorry, but I don’t know how to explain it.

        • Yes, it is paper ribbon which you can find that most florists like to use.
          The cable tie is to stop the cone from coming down to the pot.
          No paper ribbon on the base but you can cut a felt circle and glue it there.
          Hope this explain your question.

  17. Thanks so much for the tutorial! I’m in the process of making mine and it’s turning out awesome. Your description has been perfect in helping me do it! 2 quick questions for you. First, do you have a good/efficient way to cut out all the squares? Folding them and gluing them hasn’t been bad, but cutting them all out was torture! Also, I’ve been having a problem with being able to see the cardboard cone through the fabric. I’m thinking next time I could spray paint it green, and that would help, but maybe you have another good suggestion? Thanks again, I really appreciated your tutorial!

    • Glad to get the feedback from you 🙂
      I folded the fabric into a few layers and used roller cutter to cut them out, it is quite painful too because I need to press quite hard to reach all layers.
      Another way is to get it done with tooling, like square puncher but it is expensive for low volume “production” because customization of the square size is going to hurt your pocket. So….. I still think using roller cutter is the best way.
      You can wrap the cone with the same fabric and glue it on.
      Please share with us your photo 🙂 I am setting up a reader gallery soon, so you can upload your photo of your handmade done by using pattern and tutorial found in Craft Passion. It will take a while for me to get that gallery section done, so if you have any photos that you would like to submit, please email to me at craftpassion @ live . com (take away all the spaces in between).

      • Hi Such a sweet lovely tree. May i know the measurements of the cloth squares and the cone card board pls? Thank you

        • There is a downloadable pdf document in the post, please find the link and click to download. All information you needed to make the tree is there.
          Happy making 🙂

  18. I am so doing this o.o.

  19. Can you please let me know a better description of what type of material to use? I’m not sure I know what you mean by poly jersey? Doesn’t the material need to be stiff? thanks Diane

  20. Hi! Thanks for sharing such an amazing tutorial! I can’t wait to give it a try! I bought all my supplies yesterday, hopefully I can get started today 🙂

    I have a quick question, what is the height of the cone used for the of the tree? I want to make sure I’m printing the pattern the correct height.


    • In order to check if the printed dimension is correct, just use a ruler to measure the small square petal, it should read 25mm or 1″.

      • I made a smaller version to try it out first and it turned out beautifully. Now, I want to make a bigger tree using paper cone bought from Art Friend (craft store in Singapore). I used fabric glue but I got frustrated because it didn’t glue well. The petals kept falling off. So I decided to use UHU glue. It kept the petals in place and I was able to complete the whole tree in a relatively short time. Thanks for the detailed tutorial and please keep many more coming.

  23. I do a lot of crafts and really like the table tree.
    I would very much like to know what kind of material you used and how much it takes
    Thanks in advance.
    you rewaly made a betiful tree

  24. Did you use card stock for the cone??
    Would cotton or poly/cotton fabric work well -I have spray starch which would make it stiffer.
    Do you think that would work??
    Thanks for a beautiful tree!!!
