Would you believe that you can create a beautiful Christmas tree using a tomato cage?
Normally my tomato cages spend the winter behind the garden shed, but I started to think about how they have a Christmas tree shape when upside down.
So, I brought out some tomato cages, mini-white lights and a hair band…
The process was so simple. I took the hair band and wrapped it around the top of the tomato cage. Then all that was left to do was to wrap the lights around the cage. I started from the bottom and went up.
It took me less then 10 minutes to do my first one and the others went just as quickly.
Although the outside of our house is decorated for Christmas, I decided that I wanted to decorate my vegetable gardens.
I placed two of my tomato cage Christmas trees in my side vegetable garden. I could hardly wait for the sun to go down to see how they looked.
I must say, that I am thrilled with the results. I can see my ‘festive’ vegetable garden from my kitchen window.
I liked it so much, that I did the same for my other vegetable garden.
The thing that I love most about this project (besides being pretty) is that I was able to use regular old tomato cages to make them.
**You could also put them up on your empty plant containers for a dramatic look.
So, do any of you feel inspired to drag out your tomato cages from winter storage?
