How to Make Your Own DIY Tomato Cage

I like to think I’m crafty, but I have more of a creative brain than nimble fingers. I can’t cut in a straight line and my hemming with a needle and thread looks like it was done by a toddler.

But I hate to pay even $20 for something like a Tomato Cage when I think I can do it myself. I knew it didn’t need to be pretty – it just had to keep the plants from toppling over. So I took some wire hangers I’d be thrilled to upcycle anyway and twisted them into a contraption with some random extra wire that probably came with a picture hanging kit.

Again, it’s not beautiful. But it works. And it was free!
