No Welding Req'd 6' Snowflakes


Recommended Posts

Last year I wanted to make some large sno flakes for the front of the house.. I had found how to make them from tomato cages.. now, they could be welded, but I havent any welding experience, or hardware.. so zip ties worked well for me..

Take one tomato cage,

Cut each loop halfway between the legs. (1)

Bend eack cut loop straight (3)

Bend each straight leg to form an "arrow" (4)

Lay out each "arrow" butt end to end (5)

zip-tie (or weld) the longest legs together

Bend cut legs out so they are evenly spaced to look like a snowflake.

Wrap with white garland (or spray white paint)

Wrap with 1-2 sets white mini or LED lights. (6) this will take a little experimenting to get lights to evenly space on each leg.

Once completed, plug in to test, then hang on front of house or on large tree..

I have 5 more to make for this year..
