How to Make Holiday Topiaries

By: Danny Lipford


To make your own holiday topiary you’ll need a tomato cage, a pot and some garland.

In this case our tomato cages were too large for the pots so we cut off the largest bottom hoop. The remaining legs can bend in as you press it into the pot. Join the three legs on the other end of the cage with a large rubber band so they form a point.

Wrap the cage with garland, working from the bottom up. The garland we’re using has a flexible wire core so we can occasionally twist it around the tomato cage to keep it in place. Continue wrapping until the cage it is completely covered.

After the addition of some holiday lights and some colorful bows, the topiary is ready to display.
