I found some tomato cages at a yard sale last month.  I wired 3 together to make my tree.  I used an old funnel as a topper and wired the whole thing to a bottomless chair for stability and to elevate it from the floor because I have a cat.  I collect old Christmas ornaments and loaded the tree with them, as well as, vintage knee hugger elves and a few newer ornaments that have a retro feel.  This is my second tree.  The other is a branch broken off a tree durning a hurricane.   It too is loaded with old ornaments.  My house is full of old christmas.  I love this time of year.
