"Snow" Dusted Tomato Cage Christmas Trees

Tomato cage Christmas trees are all over Pinterest. They are easy to make and cost next to nothing. I wanted to share with you how I styled my tomato cage tree this holiday season.
I bought two tomato cages for $1.98 at Lowe's. I had a box of old garland in my garage.
I wrapped the garland around each cage.
I added fresh Christmas tree branches to the garland. They were free at Lowe's.
I added ornaments and pine cones.
White spray paint and glitter spray gave the tree a dusting of "snow".
Easy and inexpensive.
My total cost was $4 for the tomato cages. Everything else I already had at home.

    How many garlands did you use for each tree, and what size cages ?

      It took 3- 9ft. Garlands for each of my trees. I did two.

    Hi, I will like to know where did you get the vases and how you made it fit in it.?

      I made one of the cages for fall. You turn the cages upside down and wind the garland around the cage. If you want to save it for next year, wire down the garland. I used an old planter and used fabric to wrap around it. You could also use Christmas paper if it is in the house or you could paint it.....so many ideas, just let your imagination run and go for it....super simple with a big impact. Hope this helped.

    I did the same last year but added green lights to them and red silk pointsettias
    I took the pointsettias off after Christmas and added a selection of Spring Flowers. Kept the,up all year long and just changed the flowers put. Added lighting as we have no street lights.

    These are the prettiest tomato cage trees I have seen yet! I’ve seen them with lights only, and lights and ornaments, but not with the garland...wonderful idea!! Thanks for sharing!
