Untraditional Tree

While working on the Creative Connection,
I developed a slight obsession with tomato cages and wrapping things in yarn.
It's still hanging in there.
I made this Christmas tree with the last of my stash of tomato cages.
I think it looks fresh and modern and fun.
Many shades of green make for an interesting mix.
Just wrap and wrap and wrap,
tying off at each beginning and end.
Finish with some simple ornaments
and a cascade of ribbon.


  1. This is adorable! Fresh with just enough funky... I love tomato cages. I am using them..32 cages to be exact.. to make the pieces for my lifesize chess board. Can't wait to get them done but think I will steal one for a Christmas tree!!! Great idea and so cute!

  2. I lOVE it...I have a few of these in my got my creative juices flowing again my friend.

    Happy Friday....can't wait to see what you are up to next. xoxoxxo
