The procedure for making a tree is not at all complicatedand does not take much time. The first thing to do is make a crown. Each denomination is added with a "kulechkom", the edges are fixed with glue. The number of such "leaves" will depend on the size of the ball-base. Or you can make a curly crown: for this, you need to fold the accordion (remember, as a fan in childhood?). The tip of the banknote in this case is bent and fastened to the base with pins. The more you make the leaves, the more chic the tree will look. Now wrap the future trunk with foil and insert one end into the base of the crown, and the other into the pot filled with gypsum. If the plaster was not found, it can be replaced with any solidifying mortar. Finish decorating the tree on your own.

Wire cut into pieces of 12-15 centimeters - this will be the branches of our tree. Now we weave in each branch three pebbles and one coin. When all twigs are woven, we wrap them with floral tape, connecting them together. We got about seven main branches. From them we collect the future trunk, which is also wound with a ribbon.
