Wordless Wednesday: You Got the Money, Honey...

Anyone remember that song? :)

Who says money doesn't grow on trees?
Origami Money Tree
Someone donated it to Hidden Lake Gardens in Tipton, MI.
& my son thought it was really cool. ;)

That is AWESOME. I remember my dad got a money tree for something when I was a kid, but it was literally a plant with dollar bills just taped on. This one is NICE!

Optimistic Existentialist said...

Wow - that's probably a damn expensive tree ;)

Janine Huldie said...

Ok, now I want that!! Seriously so awesome and apparently money does grow on trees :)

My dad's side of the family used to do something similar for weddings; they had an old wire frame that was used and used until it finally fell apart.

Theresa Mahoney said...

I wish someone would donate one to me! Seriously, that is so cool! People always amaze me with their talents!

Denise Gabbard said...

Your son is right-- that is a way cool tree. Have you seen the little bamboo money trees that Home Depot is selling? People swear by those things.

Anonymous said...

That IS pretty cool! What a great gift idea for a wedding or graduation...or a housewarming! Fun!

JT and Amanda said...

I wish that was real and at my house! haha. This is neat!

Bailey said...

I've seen money trees done for events like showers and graduations, but I've never seen one that pretty.

mail4rosey said...

I haven't heard of them, but that's fun that they're trendy. :)

Elephant's Child said...

What an absolute stunner. Green thumbs at their very best. Thanks.

Elephant's Child said...

PS: Green thumbs and rather a lot of other clever digits.

Anonymous said...

Now if only it grew money!! What a clever idea, I have only seen the shirts made of money.

Monica said...

Wow! I would welcome a tree like that :)

Coolmoms Cooltips said...

Came out very artistic! I wonder how much money was used for this

It is really cool. What a great gift. Who doesn't want money? And artsy money, at that!

Amanda Love said...

I am so loving the look of this. I have no idea how to do anything origami but if I did I would so love to make this.

Pam said...

This is so cool! Someone made a money lei for my daughter's friend's graduation, and this reminds me of it.

Ann Jones said...

That really does look neat! I wonder how much money is in the tree :)

becca said...

How cool it really looks like money growing very nice.

StarTraci said...

Wow! I've seen money trees but never one where they actually made it look like leaves. That must have taken a long time but it is really cool.

Annemarie Leblanc said...

Wow! You have a lot of talent to make something as incredible as this! I think we need more money trees in our lives.

Your son's right... that tree really IS cool.

Your son IS right. That is awesomely cool, and it will be kinda sad when they take it apart to collect the cash.

Ai Sakura said...

I think it's really cool too!!!! So much effort and time spent on it!

Ai @ Sakura Haruka

DWei said...

Man, if you have that what do you do? Keep it, or break it apart and spend it?

Lawna Noe said...

So money does grow on trees...you just have to be lucky enough to have one. That is the most unique tree I have ever laid eyes on!

Lulu Abruzzo said...

That's really well done and it looks pretty too!

Jennifer Zimmerman said...

That is so cool. I would never have the patience (or cash) to make one!

mail4rosey said...

Ha! I knew someone would remember it. ;)

Z @ Kicking Kilos said...

:))
Money money money
Its so funny
in a rich man's world!

Ashley Gill said...

This looks so cool! My daughter would think she could have it because we always tell her Money doesn't Grow on Trees!!!

myshelomitashop said...

woow, that is awesome!!

Danielle said...

Wow that is amazing. I wonder how long something like that takes to make.

Pam said...

Your son must have loved seeing that! How cute. Too bad it isn't real money, LOL.

Ashley B. said...

What an awesome money tree! Maybe someone will make one for me! Haha, who am I kidding!

Lady Lilith said...

Oh wow what a newt tree. It looks it took a long time to make.

Pam said...

Me too! I'll take several of them to grow, actually.

Sarah-Louise Bailey said...

WOW that is amazing - it's so pretty as well. I wonder how long it took to put it all together. x

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

This is really creative. I think it would make a great gift for those kids who are graduating this Spring.

JT and Amanda said...

I want one in my yard too! If you figure out how to get one for free, let me know! haha

Mina Slater said...

That is so awesome! I would love to learn how to actually make one! I can't say it would look at as good as that money tree, but it would be fun to try.

Curby Aardvark said...

I could really use a money tree, I'd probably just pick it all apart slowly as I spend it.

Megan Chamberlin said...

How do I learn to grow these, lol?? Origami is such a neat art, someone was very talented with this tree!

Mel@Mellywood's Mansion said...

I'd love o make one so fun, but our money is plastic coated and the smallest bill is $5 sp that would be one expensive tree :)

Mommy 2 J.A.M. said...

My boy would be smart and say see mom, Money really does grow on trees. I love this idea

Cheriese said...

This is SO awesome!!!

Kristi Maloney said...

It's actually too perfectly put together to actually use any of the money!! And yes, I would love one of those!

Onica MommyFactor said...

What a great and craft thing to do. It's almost regrettable to take off the money from the tree.

Healy Harpster said...

Those are the trees that we are dreaming to grow in our own yard!

Unknown said...

From BabsProjects: Like someone mentioned before, I wish I would have a real version of this growing in my backyard. No harm in day dreaming right? Would be great to pluck out some bills every time my kids wanted something.

Courtney G said...

I would like to learn to fold paper like that. I fold shapes sort of with fabric, but the paper is just so precise and cool, huh.

Alice Chase said...

That one is very well done! I think I have something new on my wish list. lol

Suzy said...

It does look pretty cool.
Dropping by from Ruchira;s WW

That is pretty cool!

Almost Precious said...

Oh Lordy, this really dates me but I sure do remember that song.
"If you've got the money honey I've got the time We'll go honky tonkin' and we'll have a time We'll have more fun baby on the way down the line".

I was just a child at that time so I know it must have been Lefty Frizzell's version (as his was the original put out sometime in the early 50's) Willie Nelson's version didn't come out until 1976 and by then I was a wife and mother.
I can still hear the melody in my head, a real country western "Honky Tonk" tune. :D

mail4rosey said...

Ha! Another person who knows the song! :) I'm pretty sure she had a record, and that it was Lefty Frizzell's version. :)

Terra Heck said...

Wow, that's a creative way to fold money!

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

It is very cool... If you got the money honey, I got the time.
