For years, I’ve been giving my now-16-year old nephew creative money gifts for birthdays and Christmas. This year, I proved that money DOES grow on trees by creating this Money Tree for him! It is a real branch in a clay pot, supported by about 350 of the dirtiest pennies I could find. The leaves are made of felt and have currency and coins hidden inside. I glued them on individually to mimic the look of real leaves.
