Turning Light-up Christmas Deer into Quick Topiary

PhotoalbumDdd18Pict0046.jpg The frames are moved atop a place with lots of 3-4' Alaskan willow sprouts. The willow is twisted around and up the legs of the frames, and woven in and out between the fake leaves and wires like vines.

Willow sproutings are also wound up metal garden arches. Most trellis type plants can't grow as perennials in Alaska, but the local willow sprouts that come up on their own make a great free substitute.
