Snowman From Tomato Cages

410,613 Views
I am in love with the snowmen trees that I am seeing this year. I created a snowman to stand guard at my house this year. He is made from two tomato cages, a glass light globe and a whole bunch of deco ribbon. His head was filled with white paint, then wired to the tomato cages. Then he got the ribbon treatment. His buttons are from ornaments with some "snowflakes" painted on them. To give him height, I planted him in a plant urn.

    Very elegant. I wonder if his cousin, the scarecrow, could show such style.
