We typically have a garden in our backyard each year and we always plant tomatoes! Tomato cages are a must have in your garden, but have you ever thought about using them indoors?

With a few materials, you can instantly give your tomato cages an upgrade and make them look stunning indoors. Let’s get started!

Cut off the spiky feet with a clipper or a hacksaw. Get as close as possible to the circle, as the large circle will become your base.

Spray paint your cage on cardboard or another material in a well ventilated area. I sprayed multiple coats of paint to make sure I covered it well.

Put a pot or basket in the top with your plant. Be sure your plant is in something that allows for drainage.

    I have a 12 lb. cat who lives to shred plants - yes I make sure they are not poisonous - and I'm wondering if you have any ideas on how to make this sturdy enough to not tip over in his quest to destroy my decor, while not losing the open, airy feel of your original work? (Which, by the way, is gorgeous!)

      Hi! I found a plastic pot at our local home improvement store that has a lip around the top. This pot hangs around the top ring of the tomato cage and, in my opinion, made it a bit sturdier. Hope that helps!
