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

Step 1:

Cut some branches off of a pine tree. Tie the branches together to form the shape of a Christmas tree.

Step 2:

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.

Step 5:

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.
