A 4x4 and a bunch of dowels.
Drill holes the diameter of the dowels, on a 45 - 60 degree angle in a spiral down and around the 4x4.
Cut dowels in many lengths from real short to long, each one progressivly longer than the last.
Squirt a little wood glue into a hole and insert the dowel.
Repeat until all dowels are in wood 4x4.
Spray paint hot pink or green or silver or gold.
When dry, decorate.

Now get craftin'!

I have an old hoop skirt, probably from someone's wedding dress, and I was thinking it would be fun to make it stand with some sort of dowel/big can type contraption. Stitch on a pretty silver or snowy white garland and some ornaments. I think it would look really good and kind of magic with twinkle lights under it.

This is all you need to do, my mom and I have made plenty of them...
Take a tomato cage, any size you want, and turn it upside down. Then all you have to do is by the greens and twine to attach as much or as little to the tomato cage. And then you're done Smiley
