...and you all might have already known about or figured this 'how to out.' The video is showing how to make an Autumn Fall 'Tree' decoration but all I could think about was what a perfect trellis for potted plants. Any other novel ideas from those of you loving your climbers?

So then I thought...I'm going to google and see what else could be done... NOTE: photo is NOT mine but from following article http://bestplants.com/clever-uses-for-tomato-cages/

I have not gotten very fancy. I only use bamboo and wire tomato cages, or the special 3 ring trellises for the special Japanese cultivars.

LOL - believe me when I say 'my style' is anything BUT fancy. I'd never thought of turning a tomato cage upside-down and banding the top to form a trellis for a pot. I was pretty dang excited when I saw that. Joseph - can you show me an example the 3 ring trellises you've used?

Sometimes you can score on ebay but I haven't seen these trellises for sale lately.

I like the tomato cage idea...might just have to try that next year!
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...
