|How to Make a Money Tree for Christmas|
|Written by Susan Sutton|
Instead of putting a money on a card try putting money on a tree. This is very unique and the person recieving will have never had one of these before. This is a great gift for both adults and children.
Things you will need:
Pine branches or small faux/real pine tree, Silver spray paint
Shoe box, Foam florist block, Terracota pot
Paint/paintbrush, Ribbon, Bulbs or other small decorations
Money, Clear basket bag, Bow
Cut some branches off of a pine tree. Tie the branches together to form the shape of a Christmas tree.
Cut a hole in the bottom of a shoe box and stick the bottom of the branches through. Now that the branches are standing upright spray paint them silver.
While the tree is drying paint the pot red or another holiday color of your choice.
Now that the pot is dry put florist foam into the container.
Stick the branches into the florist foam. If there is a gap between the tree and the top of the pot, tie a colorful ribbon around the base of the tree.
Roll up some money to your tree with some ribbon. You can decorate the tree with other decorations like colorful bulbs.
Put a large clear gift basket bag over the tree and tie the top with a ribbon.
