I needed something large and Christmasy to frame our fireplace and came up with these.

They're made using the cone-shaped tomato cages and 100s and 100s of feet of tree garland. 

Please ignore the sheep...he periodically sneaks into our photos!   Wink

  Hi I am Andy, I am New Here but I wanted to comment on you tomatoe cage "TREES" Those are Great , We "my Nephew's and I) made something simalier last year using 6  wire coat hangers, somehow wired in the middle at the hook art to form a triangle shame and wound garland and a small string of lights and used them to line the side walk at my Mothers home last CHristmas, I wish I could remember exactly how to make them the Boy's are the ones that tried to teach me how to make them  but they turned out very nice and considering what almost the same thing cost commercially  I think is is a Great Idea   Nothing like I MADE it my self to put you on the hiliday spirit, Maybe thats why I am still making things  Trying to hold on just a bit longer LOL    Peace and Light    Andy  Happy New Year
