Tomato Cage Tree





                            
                                     This is a fun project just in time for the Holiday Season..


                                          Having many tomato cages in the shed and
                                             leftover...don't know how I'm going to use
                                                 it..... FAUX GARLAND

                                                         I decided to make a tree...
                                                             not just any old tree
                                                               but this tree is going
                                                                  to be  NATURE INSPIRED !


                                                  So let's get started shall we.....

                   Supplies you will need:
                    . tomato cage
                    . faux garland
                    . florist wire
                                                 

                                                     

                                                         Wrap the top with the florist wire
                                                                         as shown...


                                                     Now you are ready to assemble this cute tree..


                                                              

                                                                 Start at the top and wrap garland
                                                                       around and around the
                                                                           tomato cage till
                                                                        you reach the bottom.

                                                                  Now use some of the florist
                                                                     wire to hold the branches
                                                                         to the tomato cage.....


                                                               Time to get creative...

                                                        time to shape it
                                                                 pull out and fluff up                                                 
                                                                       and make it look like branches

                                                                            

                                                              It's beginning to look like a tree....

                                                    I had some bittersweet leftover from
                                                            my fall urn and used it to wind
                                                                 around my tree......


                             
                                                            Grape vine would also look
                                                                     very rustic....

What is this??



What is this????


I came upon this in a Natural Aromatherapy store.


Any guesses???

This is a Root Brush...
Pot and Vegetable Scrubber...

 
                                                                  Handmade in the
                                                              Mexican Countryside
                                                                           from
                                                               Zacaton Grass Root


                                                      I keep it by the kitchen sink
                                                                   in easy reach....
           
                                                    After use, rinse and hang to drip dry
                                                                      after use....

                     
                                                        This product is biodegradable,
                                                 environmentally and socially friendly.....

                                                        I'm always on the lookout for
                                                               products that help the
                                                                     environment.
