    Heather, I'm not sure about there, but here you can purchase them at the Dollar store.

    My great aunt used a small artificial christmas tree.

    Can you find a suitable branch to use? Paint the branch white, or some other pastel color. You could decorate an empty can of the appropriate size and use plaster to "plant" the branch in. Use some of that moss stuff or ground coffee to cover the plaster.

    I've seen them at the Dollar Tree and nice hard cardboard ones at the 99cent only stores.

    Here's one made out of twisted wire, it's easy to make.......
    Get a large bundle of wire, colors, length, depending on what size tree you would like.... Twist all wires at the bottom to make the trunk, separate the wires at top to make branches, twist and gnarl them to your liking.... set in a pot of foam or plaster ...



    This one by the way is a mere $68.00 from Martha Stewart....... LOL
