Recycle a Tomato Trellis & Make a Wishing Tree

Here's an artful way to put a tomato trellis to good use... turn it into a Wishing Tree! Simply take a metal tomato plant trellis, put it into a soil filled pot and have children design their own wish to attach it to the "tree".

These wishes were created on rice paper, but you could also use handpainted paper or construction paper with collage materials on top.

With summer coming up, you could even create this to decorate an outdoor vegetable garden.

This creative idea came from a volunteer at A Window Between Worlds, a shelter for battered women and their children in Venice, CA.
