Need something new for your holiday decorating? Grab a tomato cage and some deco mesh for this adorable DIY holiday topiary idea!

Here's how to make a Christmassy deco mesh topiary for your front porch.

Deco mesh is such versatile stuff and it's so easy to wrap and decorate with. I had this idea for a Christmas tree that could also be turned into a fun winter tree.

Cutting the tomato cage to size

Taping the tomato cage to the planter

2. Tape the tomato cage to the planter

Next, you need something to weigh down the planter. I used a large rock. Then, attach the tomato cage to the planter - I just used Scotch tape for this. It won't show through once we're done.

Tying the top of the tomato cage

3. Tie the top of the tomato cage

To tie the points of the tomato cage together, I used half a pipe cleaner.

Wrapping LED lights around the tomato cage

4. Add LED lights

After that, add some LED lights. You'll want to make sure they're LED lights to avoid a fire hazard.
