Whenever I stop by to visit my Dad, I always find something in his back yard that I can upcycle. He loves to go to yard sales and has the best luck with curbside finds! He had several old tomato cages and I asked if I could bring one home. I’ve seen several Christmas Tree Topiary ideas on Pinterest using a tomato cage. I thought it would fun to make a Spring Topiary Tree.
Start by wrapping the boxwood garland around the tomato cage. I didn’t want it to be completely covered and wanted some of the metal to show. The 9 ft size was the perfect length and I just tucked the top of the garland under the rubber band and then added a dab of  hot glue to the bottom.
Next, add the layered ribbon and tulle in the space below the garland around the entire tomato cage. Again, I just added a dab of glue at the top and bottom.
You can use whatever type flowers that you like. These pretty pink and white flowers were in my stash, so I just used those. Actually, everything was in my stash with the exception of the tomato cage. So this entire project didn’t cost anything. Love when that happens! Just hot glue the flowers evenly around the entire topiary tree.
The next time you see a tomato cage ready for the trash, give it a second thought! They can be used for all occasions and you could even add Easter eggs to them if you wanted for Spring. Wouldn’t a fall one look so pretty? 
Since I am keeping this in my craft room and tend to blog at night, I added pretty white lights. It looks so pretty all lit up at night! I hope you enjoyed this Spring Topiary. For more Spring ideas check out my Spring Mantel
