Does Money Grow on Trees?

Nah...but aren't these cute? We usually don't have a lot of time to shop for that "special" gift. Our typical gift is money in an envelope and a homemade card. We got a little creative today. We made these money trees using garbage - really!

Follow these easy steps to create a unique party gift:
  • supplies - any size can, shredded paper, wooden dowel, pipe cleaners, scraps of paper, adhesive,ribbon or any other embellishements

  • cover you can with paper (it's easiest to embellish before ahherring to can)

  • wrap the wooden dowel with pipe cleaners

  • stuff can with shredded paper

  • center the dowel in the can - use hot glue to keep in place

  • tie money onto the tree using pipe cleaners
