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.

You may have to play around with yours depending on 
what type of container you put them in.

You may have to stack bricks or another pot in the bottom of your 
container to bring the trees up to the correct height and then
determine what you need to do to secure them to your planter pot.

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.

  3. Beautiful...great idea to get rid of those ugly tomato cages still sitting in my garden!

  4. They're lovely! great idea, i bet it would look gorgeous with boxwood too! Saw them over at Under the Table, nice to discover your blog!

  5. Nice idea :))

  6. love this idea! your tomato cage Christmas trees turned out great!

    i also love your sparkly wreath. where did you find it? or, did you make that, also?

  7. can u please write down exactly what u did i would like to make these as well

  8. I have been making these for several years. I change them up each year to fit the colors/theme of the year. So easy and so versatile. I have even grown English Ivy in large clay pots and trained it to fill in the cage frames.

  9. Any suggestions for where to get inexpensive evergreen garland?

  10. My sons are putting the tree up now while the weather stays so nice. I had 8' of garland and it is not quite enough. Thanks for a great idea and Merry Christmas!

  11. My sons are putting the lights on the tree now. Looks so cute and a great project. I suggest at least ten feet of garland. I bought 8' and it doesn't quite cover it entirely. Have a Merry Christmas and thanks for a great idea!

  12. Visting via Pinterest. Thanks for the idea! Can I ask how you secured them in the pot? I bought some 16" square planters I want to change out with the seasons, and need some way to prop these trees up in them.
