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!
