Tomato Cage Topiary

Tomato Cage Topiary

I live in Wisconsin, it’s cold here, so very very cold here in the winter. I have always admired a winter front porch with a potted topiary but even a hearty one would have a rough life on my front porch.  I was determined to find a way to have a topiary this year, and so I did.  In fact it turned into good sized tree and makes a statement on my front porch.

Here are my secret supplies:

  • A large flower pot (I used a very lightweight one so I also added some rocks to weigh it down)
  • A tomato cage (I didn’t have a metal one left from my garden so I used a fancy plastic one)
  • Wire
  • Evergreen garland
  • A string of lights

I started by placing the tomato cage upside down in the pot and filling the bottom with rocks.  I tied the tops together with picture hanging wire to create a tree shape.

Then I started at the top and wrapped garland around the cage.  I fluffed it out to cover any gaps and added some lights.

For now it’s one of the lone decorations on my porch, but the rest is coming along.  I love how real this looks from a few feet away.

I finally have a topiary on my porch!

Do you decorate a winter porch?  I’d love to hear your ideas.
