Post-Tomato Season Crafts

By Kira Hamman

Tomato season may be drawing to a close, but that doesn’t mean we can’t immortalize our passion for tomatoes!

We at Tomato Casual have carefully selected some post-tomato season craft projects to keep you busy until seed-starting time.

Check it out:

Not sure what to do with your tomato cages over the winter? Turn them into Christmas decorations! The DIY network shows you how to make a tomato cage into a Santa Claus statue. No kidding.

Who better to create tomato-related crafts than Martha Stewart, the doyenne not only of crafting but also of gardening and cooking? Martha gives us a modern take on the ubiquitous tomato pincushion that all our grandmothers had. It gives new meaning to the concept of an heirloom.

If you knit, or plan to learn, you can make a tomato baby hat. In fact, you can make tomato baby hats in varying degrees of ripeness.

If you prefer crochet to knitting (or if you prefer freaky to cute), you can crochet a psychotic tomato. Really.

And of course, everyone’s favorite holiday is right around the corner. What better to dress as than our favorite food? Parenting magazine gives directions on making a tomato costume, which can of course be sized according to need.

Have fun, and send pictures!
