Cagey Conifer

Total Time Needed: 1-2 Hours

'Tis no longer the season for growing veggies, so go ahead and transform a tomato cage from your garden into this clever evergreen look-alike.


  • Tomato cage
  • Duct tape
  • Wrapping paper
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • 3/4-inch binder clips


  1. First clean the cage's prongs and wrap them together with duct tape to form a point.
  2. Roll a sheet of wrapping paper into a cone, tape it to secure it, and trim the bottom edge. Slip the cone over the cage's point.
  3. Put a second sheet of wrapping paper under the cage, trace around the cage, and trim the circle so that it's just wider than the base.
  4. Use binder clips to attach cards to the rings.
