Since we have already made a crepe paper satsuma branch and orange blossom branch, Meagan decided to step it up a notch and create a crepe paper orange tree for this month’s craft collection. Unlike the satsuma branch, this tree is more involved. But it’s still a simple one to craft!

Our tutorial below will show you how to make the oranges and leaves as well as how to form the base of your tree and its multiple branches. If you have any questions, just comment below and let us know.

Orange you glad you found this DIY?

Our crepe paper orange tree is going to look so beautiful in your home! Or you can always make it as a new year gift for someone. The color orange is associated with happiness and creativity while orange trees are a symbol of love and strength, so this little tree will be such a lovely reminder of those things in addition to making gorgeous home decor.

Skill level: Beginner

Crating tip: Our finished crepe paper orange tree is about 18″ tall, but you can make your tree as big as you like. Just make more leaves and oranges!
