This is a money tree created for a 50th surprise birthday party. It is constructed of a sassafras branch (dogwood works good as well), curling ribbon in various lengths tied onto the branches. I used a vase as tall as the branch and added sand and rocks for stability. Money, small gag gifts, notes, candy, cards, even jewelry can be added. I plan on affixing 10 $5 bills to start off the decor and have guests add to it.

How do you make a money tree?
I have made several money trees for our ministers and missionaries. Just get a branch off a tree the size you can use.
I need to make a money tree for our Pastor, for Pastor Appreciation Day. Can someone help me out?
We want to give my 85 year old mother money for her birthday, we want to make a money tree. Any suggestions on how to craft one? I know there are certain ways the dollars need to be folded. etc.
