Step 1

 Mark trellis ends

Lay a straightedge even with the tips of the outside trellis slats and mark straight lines on the ends of the slats. Then jigsaw the ends so the flared end of the trellis rests stable on a flat surface.

Step 2

 Trim trellis edges

Trim the ends of the horizontal pieces to extend no more than 3/4 inch beyond the vertical pieces.

Step 3

  Attach trellises

Stand the three trellises with the narrow ends up. Use cable ties to loosely attach the trellises where the horizontal bars meet. When finished, tighten all the ties to secure the trellises together.

Step 4

 Top with Pot

Paint the terra-cotta pot and colonial ball top with white spray paint. Add an accent color (we used Frosty Berry) to the pot as desired. When the paint is dry, attach the finial to the pot with an exterior adhesive, such as Liquid Nails.

Step 5

Place the structure in your garden and complete it by placing the pot and colonial ball on top of the trellises.
