Tomato Cage Topiary Christmas Trees

I don't actually have a legitimate tutorial for these trees because I made them a couple of years ago.
I don't use them every year but my net lights that I bought last year to put on my columns had issues and I didn't feel like going out and buying more so down these came from the attic.

I put them in these yummy big iron planters 
I found at a yard sale a couple of years ago

Love!

Okay so back to the trees and the non-tutorial...
it's basically just a tomato cage wrapped with garland and lights....done.

Of course you could go all out and add ornaments, 
ribbon, floral picks or other decorative things to it,
 but I just wanted a simple lighted tree shape

I had the hardest time getting good photos of these, 
I think it has something to do with the photographer,  '
but they really do look pretty, especially at night

My shiny sparkly wreath that I added a "peace" sign to...
 I'm on a  peace theme this year since I just made the Peace Wreath...

Merry Christmas Y'all!

I've gotten a lot of emails asking me the paint color on the front door...
It's from Home Depot, Glidden exterior...

The color is "City Bistro"...I'm assuming they still have it but this is the label,
hope that helps!

  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.

  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.
