Have a Beery Christmas

I was recently faced the fun problem of finding something to do with vacation time when I don’t have the money to travel.  Why not build a Christmas tree with cans that haven’t been put on display yet?

Christmas Can Tree

In case anyone is interested, there are 452 cans in this tree.  It started with a single row of all of my tall cans and a stack of boxes.

Boxes of not-yet-displayed cans

I could tell as I got near the top that the first attempt was a bit too small, so I had to add on more rows.

I ended up with 9 rows before I ran out of cans.  Then I ransacked my toy collection to decorate.  And, of course, I had to top the tree with the most Christmas themed can and toy I have.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and/or a Happy Holiday Season.
