Here's what some other Hometalkers have done:
Deco Mesh Winter Topiaires
This link has some ideas:
Depending on how much you want the original frame to show, you can do something simple by just adding lights. Deco mesh attached with pipe cleaners is another option. Adding garland or greenery, bows, even ornaments. It all depends on how much you want to disguise the frame.
Some good ideas here:
This site has an excellent tutorial with pictures. https://www.twotwentyone.net/tiered-tomato-cage-christmas-trees/
I would just wrap garland (real or faux) around the frame and add lights. You can use zip ties to attach the garland to the frame.

10 Ways to Use Tomato Cages to Make Christmas Trees
Here is one from a Hometalk contributor https://www.hometalk.com/diy/decorate/christmas/fast-cheap-easy-tomato-cage-trees-2601552
'Fast, Cheap & Easy' Tomato Cage Trees
For your tomato cage Christmas tree, place empty tomato cage upside down in an empty planter. (Our planter was a bit oversized, so I “filled” the bottom with an upside down hanging basket.) Zip tie the loose bottom pieces of the tomato cage to create the triangular tree shape.
Start at the bottom of the “tree” and begin adding in tree limbs. Layer the limbs so that some rest on the planter, and others on the horizontal rings on the tomato cage itself. It’s going to look strange until it’s filled in, so don’t lose hope!
The limbs may not be perfect in shape, so trim off small branches if you need to. You will use these later to fill in bare spots. As your “tree” begins to fill out, use one or two limbs standing up as the top of your tree. You can simply stick them into the top of your “tree” and adjust as needed. Just like with your tomato plants in the summer, work these limbs to suit your needs. They’re flexible.
Here's a really cute one that a Hometalker did a project on
