Wearing the gloves and using the wire cutters, cut the chicken wire into circles that will fit inside each of the circles of the tomato cage. Bend the chicken wire into a bowl shape and place in the circle, wraping the wire edges of the "bowl" around the hoops of the cage to hold the it in place.
The inspiration and the instructions for this project came from a book called "Trash to Treasure #6" which is a Leisure Arts Publication. I purchased my book at EdwardHamilton.com, which has low prices on new and older books, and shipping for one low price of $3.50.
Follow up: I planted the tiers with herbs and they proceeded along quite well until the birds pulled out all of the Spanish moss for their nests.
There it sat, for months, while I looked for a free replacement for the Spanish moss. Then one day, out of the sky, came the replacement. OK. Not really out of the sky, but off of the neighbors palm tree.
It was a big piece of fiberous material, pliable enough to be cut and formed into the chicken wire cages.
Water drains through the weave and on to the plants below.
I'm currently using the planter to hold some extra strawberry plants that were left over after planting time.
