The beginning of using a tomato cage for making a grapevine tree. Use a round metal washer and push the spikes through the center. Use twine and tie it to the first ring. While the cage is upside down of course. This will provide a secure tapered point while wrapping the frame. My issuer in law and I have been trying to come up an idea and this works finally! We were using wire to wrap around each spike but it always slipped off before we were finished.
Useful in gardens, tomato cages are also ripe for repurposing as pretty plant stands. Cut off the spiky feet with a clipper, then spray-paint the cage gold. Set it on its wide end, and fit a pot inside.
