  2. 2

    Cut a 6-inch piece of wire from the wire spool with a pair of wire cutters. Bring the three wire tines together in the middle and tie them together with the 6-inch piece of wire. Cut the excess wire away once the tines are secured together.

  3. 3

    Wrap the tomato cage with chicken wire. Fasten the chicken wire to the tomato cage in several places using wire from the wire spool. Wrap from the point of the cage downward until the entire cage is encased in chicken wire.

  4. 4

    Wrap Christmas lights around the cone from top to bottom and fasten the lights to the chicken wire with wire from the metal spool. Repeat this process for all six trees and then set them up in the yard. Plug the trees in and enjoy.
