Today I have a ton going on around here! I have some very exciting things going on behind the scenes, a few massive things coming your and my way soon! I am also knee deep in the parenting during the holiday trenches. For those of you not familiar with what I am talking about. Let me explain, I have 3 Christmas parties to attend for my kids schools, one Christmas concert, one Santa meeting and a partridge in a pear tree. Or something like that. It is madness this time of year. I am telling you all of this to let you know that I also need quick and simple ideas to decorate my home. I am over at Homedit sharing these topiarys I made from simple tomato garden cages. This was so quick and easy to make, that I made two!

My supplies needed were just a few things and it was a low maintenance way to decorate my front porch for Christmas. The full tutorial can be found here.

We love driving around this time of year and enjoying all of the lights and outdoor decor. It is something we do a few times, my kids adore it and so do I. We had to up our outside decor game this year. I had always eyed those massive topiarys in stores but they are expensive. So I got around that with just a few supplies and now have my own Christmas topiary to enjoy. Now we get to “ohh and ahh” at our own home too. Which my kids do, every time we pull into the driveway. Every time. I guess I should take that as a compliment.

You all head over to Homedit for the full tutorial of this, I am off to wrap present while I can. I have no Santa’s helpers to get the job done. How crazy is your schedule right now? I am looking forward to my kid’s Christmas break. Maybe we can rest a little bit…. wait, that will mean I have three kids home all day. Not so much rest, just less running around.

    I love topiary trees, these look great! I only put a wreath up on my front door this year, oh, and I have green ivy in my window flower boxes that is still alive…that counts, right?! Haha! Maybe next year I’ll do something like this, thanks for sharing:-)

    What a cool idea! I’m definitely pinning for next year. I have a few beat up tomatoes cages I don’t use anymore so this will be a perfect way to upcycle them! 🙂

      Thank you!

  6. What I fun craft this is! It looks really easy to do too. I was looking for little trees to put on either side of my front door, these would look perfect! Merry Christmas!
