Rainy days and Sundays always get me down when I can not garden!

I turned a couple of tomato cages into a Christmas Tree!

I started with 2 round wire tomato cages.....

...and a pot wide enough to support the base of the "tree".

Place the tomato cages upside down in the pot.  Slip the second cage over the first and stagger the vertical post.  This will help keep the shape of the tree rounded. Gather the "top" of the tree and tie into a point.  

You will need to anchor the tomato cages to the pot (otherwise you may be running after it on a blustery winter night.)  I drilled holes just under the rim and secured the cages with tie wraps.  

I used 3 packs of 33 feet each green wire pine garland to cover the tomato cages.  I began at the base and worked my way to the top.  (I got a little dizzy with this part.)  

All wrapped and topped off.

I then added some lights and a bow.
