Easy Christmas Tree Display

Christmas Idea #6 - Easy Christmas Tree Display
Need a simple way to decorate the front yard this Christmas season, without the hastle of climbing on the roof in the freezing cold to hang some light icicles!?!  That's right, I am sure I am saving a few marriages with this idea.  Ta-Da!
Looks great right?  Well here's the secret.  Head to Home Depot/Lowes and pick up a tomato cage.  You know...one of these...turned the other way around...
Wrap it in white lights, and you'll have yourself a Christmas tree. 
(Idea from NE Design Build)

If you need something similar to display by the front door or on the porch, why not make your own Christmas topiary?  Using the same tomato cage from above, wrap it in garland and lights to create this expensive look for a lot less!

Honestly, these ideas just may be my favorite finds this year!  Totally loving them both!!
