    Thanks for posting some pics rfallat. I would have, ideally, bought some of those spiral trees that you see at wal-mart and then just retro fit them with pixels but too late on that. I think that will get the best look.
    The tomato cages are good for the smaller trees but I would like to do some taller 5' ones so I am trying to figure out the best construction method for the bones of it.

    Kinda the look I'm going for. I was planning on using 75 nodes with James strips on a standard tomato cage, so it would have an actual round spiral. I think that will be perfect

    I need to look and see if I can find some larger tomato cages because I think that is definitely the easiest for sure. With James' strips, which I used on my MT this year, it will be extremely easy.

    It isn't hard make them similar to the frames I used. More so if you have access to a welder, but that is not mandatory. I made my 900mm wreath using 4mm wire strapped together with 1mm wire. I then added small amount of kneadit to lock them.
