Ten Minute Trellis

Ten Minute Trellis

I am growing lots of pea plants, and I saw the little tendrils reaching and grabbing any twig they could find. I realized these little seedlings need something to climb on, and since they are too small from a big trellis, I decided to make tiny trellises. It only took me 30 minutes to make three different trellises, take the pictures & I squeezed in some Judah play time in there, too, so these don’t take long to make. I’ll make others when they grow out of them. I just wanted them to have some support early on

The ten minute trellis tutorial:

Step 1: gather supplies. You can use a variety of materials to lash the trellis together. I tried three different methods: clear tape, ribbon & glue, and electrical tape.

The first one I tried was the clear tape. The concept is the same, regardless of the materials.

Step 2: I put two of the skewers together so they made a small X at the top. I put the pointy ends down, so they go in the dirt better.

Step 3: Here’s the idea of lashing them together. Basically an "over, under & around" method.

Step 4: This one was made with only 3 skewers, the two on the sides & the other split into 3

Here is the variation with the ribbon, using E6000 & spare ribbon.

You should lash them together like step 2 & step 3 show.

You start the ribbon at the end by glueing it.

let the glue dry. Then wrap the ribbon around the skewers, glueing as you go.

and presto!
