Video: From Tomato Cage to Christmas Tree!
Tomato Cage
This season, when your neighbors are sprucing up the outside of their homes with the usual dogwood stems and evergreen boughs, turn heads at your address with something a bit more out of the ordinary: a gorgeous outdoor Christmas tree made from a tomato cage.

In this video, gardening expert P. Allen Smith describes how to create a beautiful display in just a few simple steps. All you need is a tomato cage, a container the cage will fit in, lights and various other materials you'd like to use, such as berries, ribbons or bows, colorful twigs or evergreen garland or boughs.

Smith adds apples and pinecones to his design, but the idea is to create your own personal tree using things that you like and may already have. It's a perfect activity for the entire family to share, or even the entire neighborhood!

It could be the start of a new holiday tradition.

Watch   the video and learn how easy it is to make a Christmas tree from a tomato cage.
