DIY Tomato Cage and Garland Topiary Christmas Trees

diy tomato cage Christmas topiaries
I don't actually have a legitimate tutorial for these trees because I made them a 
couple of years ago but they are super simple to create.

Grab a wire tomato cage, you may even have one if you garden...

Turn tomato cage upside down and wrap with wired garland,
securing with green zip ties or wire as you go to keep it in place.

I already had these big iron planters at my front door so 
I set my trees in them. They had a lip around the inside edge
and the trees actually fit securely.

I was going for a simple lighted tree shape but you could 
also add ornaments, pine cones, floral picks or ribbon.

I've gotten some emails about my door color.
It is Glidden exterior paint from Home Depot.
The color is "City Bistro" 10YR08/187

sparkly Christmas wreath with peace sign
To finish off my porch, I added a sparkly wreath with a "Peace" sign.
Not to be confused with my actual Peace Wreath.

I wrote this original post in 2010 but had actually created the trees 
a couple of years before that. Here we are in 2016
and I still use my topiary trees!

I have them set in a pair of urns I have and they just happen to fit
perfectly without any additional support.
 It is the same urn I use for my Fall pumpkin topiary.
