DIY Whoville Tree Supplies
- Tomato cage
- Chicken wire
- Green feather boas -4 or 5 per tree
- Christmas ornaments
- Ornament hooks
- Wire cutters
- Needle nose pliers
- Optional but recommended: Work gloves
First, stand the tomato cage over on the circular side as the bottom of the tree. Curve the pronged ends over slightly to begin to form the Whoville tree shape.
Wrap chicken wire around the form and use wire cutters to cut. Use gloves to squeeze the chicken wire around the shape to continue to build the form.
Once satisfied, wrap the shape with green feather boas.
Decorate the tree with ornaments to fill in any gaps or dress it up like a Christmas tree. Ornament hooks may need to be added to those with only ribbons to hang.
