Soda Can Christmas Tree

I can’t take credit for this idea, but I know a fun craft when I see one. I saw this aluminum can Christmas Tree last week, at the Christmas Tree Farm. It really caught my eye. I think this would be so cool on the side of a house, all lit up with lights at night, and shimmering during the day. What a great idea for recycling soda pop, beer, or any other aluminum can.

How do you make a soda can Christmas Tree?

  • In this example, the cans are glued together with hot glue. The lights can either be poking out through each can, or placed around the outside as an outline as you see above
