Christmas Treat Caddy


How's that garden of yours looking this winter?  That's what I thought. 

Here's an instructable of how to make a sort of "caddy" to hold beverages, munchies, etc during your Christmas parties with items from your garden.

You need:

1. Wire tomato cage
2. 3 plastic garden planters or bowls.  Make sure they don't have holes for water drainage at the bottom.  I used a bowl, a planter and a bucket.
3. Christmas decorations!
4. Spray paints colors of your choice.

Tools
1. Wire cutter.
2. Drill

Step 1: Step 1

Take that tomato cage and get rid of any plant carcasses that may be hanging around.  Turn it upside-down so that the pointed side is on top and the widest wire ring is on the bottom.

Remove widest ring, then remove smallest ring with wire cutters or pure elbow grease

Step 2: Step 2


Drill holes in bowls (hereafter referred to as "tiers") that correspond to the position of the straight wire of the cages.  It is helpful to use tiers of different sizes and to place the largest on the bottom as a weight to center the tree.


Step 3: Step 3


Now, if desired, you can spray paint the bowls and cage with whatever color of your choice. I chose gold.  Bling bling.

Next, insert the wire "legs" of the tomato cage into the corresponding holes drilled into your tiers.

See pictures "put it together" 1 & 2 to see the bare bones structure.

Step 4: Step 4


Congratulations, you're done!  Decorate the tree with whatever decorations and whatnot you like. 

Fill it with whatever you like, I used drinks and you can't really see from the picture but a champagne bottle at the very top.

Happy holidays!
