craft wire for each dollar. This one has 15.
For the leaves, fold the corners in like how you start a paper airplane.
My wire was already cut in a package, so I didn't have to measure, but I'm guessing it was about 14 inches. Put all the wires together, and then twist them together at the middle about four inches. For the branches, divide the wires into two or three sections, twist a bit, then divide again and twist again. Use pliers to bend the ends into a small loop around the middle of one of the dollar leaves.
For the roots, spread all the wires out so they each point in a different direction, then gather a few together and twist. Use pliers to roll up the sharp ends. Adjust the roots so the tree stands up, and each "foot" touches the ground.
To add coin "fruit/nuts," use scissors to cut thin strips of clear tape. Fold a strip of tape over a branch, and attach to both sides of the coin.
