We love this easy DIY project from Martha Stewart because it involves taking a piece of everyday tech (well, every December-day tech) and combining it with a cheap garden store staple to create beautiful decorations for your home this holiday season.

If you've got the materials ready, this DIY project could take less than a minute to finish, making it the perfect solution for last-minute folks who need to make their humble abodes festive for guests.

All you've got to do is source a three-tier round wire tomato cage from a garden store, turn it over and bend and secure the legs of the cage so they form a point. They're used to help tomato plants grow tall, but they'll be forming the shape of a Christmas tree for our project.

Then, wrap the lights you know you have cluttering your basement around the cone and secure with electrical tape as you go. After several spins, you'll have a lit-up mini Christmas tree that's perfect for hanging outside or sitting pretty on your deck or porch!
