|A money tree gift perfect for Christmas|
- 40 dollar bills
- 4" x 12" Green Styrofoam Cone
|You'll attach the folded bills to the cone with pins|
|Fold the bill toward the middle so the face appears under a triangle|
|Flip it over and fold it toward the middle again to make a pentagon or house shape|
|Fold the other side over, make a narrow house shape or elongated pentagon|
|Use pins to attach to the cone in a circular pattern, start at the bottom and work your way up.|
Fold the bills so they stick out away from the tree, rather than just lining it flush to the cone like scales. In the photo above I tried to vary the pattern and immediately reverted back to having all consistent shapes the whole way up. The uniformity really looks a lot better than trying to change the shapes toward the top.
Fold George into a strip for the top to cover the last row of pins, and attach a paper star with pins or make another tree topper of your own. The pins do a great job holding the bills in place with no glue needed!
