DIY Tomato Stake Fall Tree

I have been seeing these around everywhere lately and decided to try making one of my own. They are really easy to make and look so stinking cute! I wish I would have made one last year! I want to mention that in the photo above I made a mistake, I should have wrapped the lights on and THEN the Burlap ribbon. You can see how it looks a little funny with the lights going around the burlap.. Oops! Also, it will probably look a lot cuter once those mums beside it bloom 😉

What you will need: 

The how to: 

Step One– First you will need a tomato stake. This is an old one I got from my pap.

Step Two – Tie a knot around the base of the tomato stake with one end of the leaf garland.

Step Three – Twist the leaf garland around the tomato stake tying new ones as needed, I used 8. You can use as many or as little as you like, I like a lot of leaves on mine.

Step Four – Start at the base of the tomato stake and wrap the lights around the tree. Make sure to start with the end that plugs into the wall.

Step Five – Next, Starting at the base of the tomato stake wrap the burlap ribbon around it. The ribbon I bought had wire in it and was easy to bend around the base to stay in place. If you don’t have ribbon with wire in it then I suggest using some wire or twine to secure the ribbon.

Step Six: Next, tie a bow and use a piece of twine or wire to secure it to the top. I do not know how to make these bows so I had my mom make one for me. This is actually her tree, I made mine a few days ago.
