This tree gets its name from the shape of its leaves and how they fan out like an umbrella. Each branch typically has anywhere from 5–10 oval-shaped leaves, so you can always play around with how many leaves you use per branch. Either way, we will walk you through how to make this frosted paper umbrella tree step by step so you can craft your own version with confidence.

Crafting Tip: If you want to change the size of your tree, you can cut longer pieces of vine wire to make your tree taller. You can also add more branches and leaves, or use more vine wire if you want a thicker trunk for your umbrella tree.
