Pinterest is full of tomato cage Christmas trees. Whoever came up with this idea was a genius. While I’ve always loved Christmas topiary trees, I never cared for their price tag. I saw this one at Lowe’s while picking up my tomato cages. Pretty steep price tag, don’t you think?

Thank goodness my tomato cages were only $1.98 each. My Lowe’s carries them in two sizes and I went with the small.

The garland I used is ancient and I’m glad I had some use for it. I tied the top together and then just wrapped the garland around the cage.

While at Lowe’s, I grabbed a few  free Frasier fir branches. The guy working in their tree lot was happy to see them go. I tucked in a few branches just to give it a more “real” look.

Next I added pine cones, snowflakes, and a few silver ornaments… Basically whatever I could find in my Christmas boxes. Since my ornaments were silver and white, I decided  a light mist of “snow” would make the tree look wintery.

Leftover white spray paint and silver glitter spray (I used it for my snowflake pillow) were perfect for the Christmas topiary  tree. I used the black pots in the spring and fall, and the wreath (which I spray painted as well) is at least 10 years old. The total cost for this project was $4 for the tomato cages.
