Next, Kelly-n-Tony demonstrates how to create an easy and affordable Halloween gnome using a tomato cage!

Zip-tie the tomato cage prongs at the top, then use a black vinyl tablecloth and "creepy black cloth" to cover it. Bend a wire hanger and hang it from the prongs to attach a potato for the nose. Disassemble a string mop and attach the strands to the wire hanger for the beard.

Add a witch or wizard hat and any additional decorations you like, such as a spider. This fun DIY gnome takes less than 30 minutes to assemble and can be customized to your preferences.
