Money doesn’t grow on trees, but it’s nice to pretend it does. Though some will see the humor in this, a homemade birthday gift like a money tree can make the perfect birthday present that will be memorized for long time. With some creativity and desire you can create a great money tree to surprise the birthday girl or boy.
Chinese legend has it that the money tree is a kind of holy tree, which can bring money and fortune to the people. It is a symbol of wealth, nobility and happiness.
Depending on the age of the birthday person (let’s assume he turns 40), you can mix up the branches with different rupee amounts and have 40 rupees tied to the top branch.
To add money to the tree, simply tie or tape the bills to the branches. Another possibility is to clip the dollars to the branches with the glittery clothespins. The rupees can be rolled up, fanned out or even balled. It depends on the style and look you wish to achieve. There is no wrong way to affix the bills.
You will never go wrong with this birthday present. Your friend will be delighted.
