I have spent the past week getting our home all ready for the holidays! I absolutely love the way everything looks all decorated and lit up. We have never put lights on the house, its a lot of work and we just dont usually have the time but I did want there to be some sort of festiveness [if thats a word] on our front porch. Then I found this idea: Alternative Christmas Trees and LOVED it!
Here is my version :)
I went to the local hard ware store and bought two tomato cages -that were stored in the back. I even got a discount because they were the last two! Score!
They started off orange but I had a can of metallic paint so I gave them a quick couple of coats:
So they looked like this:
Wrapped them in lights and plugged them in:
It was such a quick and easy project and they add the perfect amount of holiday spirit to the front of our house!
