    Approximately how many feet of fall foliage and how many lights did you use?

      By looking at the finished results, I never would have guessed that it would take 60' feet of garland.

      'Goes to show that a garland seems longer when laying out flat, but seems to get shorter when wrapped around another object.

    How tall is this all together? How tall is the pot? How tall is the tree part?

      Pot is approx 15” tall. It just needs to be able to hold the tomato cage. So you can make it as tall or as short as you’d like.

      Oh, I don't know . How often would you water a tree with fake leaves and electric attached to it ? Chances are once would be enough !😊
