Recycle a Spiral Christmas Tree as a Trellis

At Christmas one year, I bought one of those lighted spiral decoration trees. After a few years, it just didn't work. I was looking for a trellis for some plants, and guess what I used? The spiral frame made the flowering vine that grew up it, look like a tree in my yard. Everyone would ask what kind of tree it was.

I have one of those lighted deer, yard adornments, wonder if it would look like a topiary if I did it right?

Thanks for the idea!

Wow I really like the idea. Being disabled I love ideas to help make my yard nicer. What kind of plant did you use in it? Thanks

Nice idea! Must be a similar effect to using one of those metal obelisk forms they sell in gardening centers (except you're using something you already have!). I bet it looks lovely. Thanks for the idea!

Great idea! One of ours pooped out this year, now I know what to do with it. Thanks & God Bless, Trish in CT

I would like to try this with the flowering vine Clematis. I once had a Clematis take over the lampost used to support its standard trellis, with quite a dramatic effect. A Clematis tree sounds lovely!

I love this idea. I do not have such a tree but may see one around town on garbage day. I'm going to keep an eye out.
