Purdiest Christmas tree EVER.


Would you BELIEVE this is made out of these?:





OH, I am ROLLING!!! Not because it's made of Mountain Dew cans, but because I actually think it's kind of pretty!! My favorite part is the "star" on top. Have I lost my mind? Just another testimonial to the magic of Christmas lights -- they can make anything pretty!

Anyone up for a soda can tree? And talk about thrifty -- just save up your pop cans and wire hangers for a year and a FREE TREE!


P.S. Click on the tree cookie and watch my pet reindeer. Ca-uuute!

  6. That is great!
    As I was looking at it I was saying is that a 5 liter bottle on the top of that tree. I didn't even realize it was made of cans.
    Yes lights make anything look pretty. LOL

  7. Oh my gosh, that is so funny! I was looking at the first photo and thinking wow, so pretty but what is it? Stuffed wtih ortaments? Then I scrolled down. I hadn't even noticed the "topper". You're right, Christmas tree lights really do make a difference!

  13. I'm looking at a post title on the right that says Holy Canoly and that seems to fit what I thought when I saw this tree!

  14. Your post is sooo funny ~ we were at my mom's for Thanksgiving and I complimented her on her tree with lights in their sunroom. She laughed, went out to the sun room and turned on the overhead light. I then saw she had her "tree lamp" with three bulbs wrapped in Christmas lights and it was so pretty at night. . . who would have ever known. We laughed and laughed, and then tonight I read your blog.

    So, yeah, everything looks better with lights!! I'm going out now to wrap myself in them :)

    Blessings,

  23. I kinda did the same thing many years ago. We had a party at our house and somehow the idea popped in my head to stick my empty can on the end of the tree branch, through the mouth of the can. so the rest of the partiers started doing it to, filling up every branch on the tree!

  24. It really IS beautiful, but leave the lights on please. I can't believe all the work into this thing, plus all the Dew you had ato go through. Hope you get some sleep before Christmas. Carol
