Tomato Cage Christmas Trees

This morning I woke up early while the house was still cold and dark and quiet. After turning up the furnace, I turned on the little Christmas tree lights out on our back deck and curled up under a blanket in a chair with my coffee to watch the sun rise over our little snow-covered yard and the hills beyond while our house warmed up.

Every winter we wrap some lights around a couple of tomato cages stuck upside down into the dirt of two plant pots on our deck by the steps. 

The tomato cage tree shapes are so plain and simple and scraggly that they remind us a little of Charlie Brown Christmas trees.

Sometimes plain and simple and scraggly is just perfect.

It's time for a party!

  1. I think they look great!!

    Hopefully FOX will show the Dallas game again here...


  2. I agree with you - they are perfect!

  3. Your little tomato cage trees are just delightful! I'll have to remember to try them next Christmas in our front yard--we always have empty tomato cages that are doing nothing else in December! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Those cages and empty pots make GREAT trees.... I'll have to mention this to my husband for next Christmas! Thanks... xox

  5. Those look awesome! I am inspired for next year!!!


  6. Your tomato cage trees are adorable, Laurel! I'm pinning this idea for next year, because I'm not sure how many more years we're going to be climbing ladders to hang Christmas lights outdoors. Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year!

  7. What a lovely idea Laurel! It looks so pretty! Wishing you a wonderful year in 2016!!! Lots of love and happiness!

  8. Such dreamy and lovely atmosphere those photographs ensue... they remind me so much of our dear "house in the roses" in ID. Although we moved three years ago, Boise is still in my heart. And I guess it will always be. I come here to remember, and dream. Thank you Laurel for posting these lovely images....

    Hugs and a great New Year to you and yours
