~ I"LL DRINK TO THAT CHRISTMAS TREE ~

YES !! you too can do this at home girls!! this my daughter send to me its called a " REDNECK CHRISTMAS TREE " So if you are Crafty girls or just plain Rednecks ...here the steps to make this can can tree...don't know how much Mountain Dew you would have to drink to do this allot I'm guessing !!!
Just a piece of ppc pipe, some steel rods and a glue gun and a drill....
Look how the did they the layers...
I love the liter of Mountain Dew as a tree topper...
And this is the finished tree...now the best part of this tree is it all recyclable...so you have money for the after Christmas Sales...And you know I think it's real pretty all done up...someone has way too much time on their hands...
Dawna, Thanks baby girl for sending me this...Hope this put a smile on your face today girls ...as it did me !!!
hope you all have a safe and blessed day and if you didn't get my "HUGS and SMILES" award take it home with you..its on my sidebar...

Oh, this is a hoot but it's quite pretty with the lights on it! Someone had a wonderful imagination.

How are feeling today???

☺♥☺ Diane

I may have already posted this... if so just delete this one... the blogger did something strange so I am not sure...LOL LOL

Deb said...

Yes Gloria,Im smiling and thinking what fun it would have been to have a small on like this a the Christmas party! I think it's a pretty creative. Deb

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

I saw this a few weeks ago on another blog. I really like the idea. It's kind of pretty.
Hugs, Terrie

onlymehere said...

You're right, someone has WAY too much time on their hands! It looks pretty though in the picture!

profenretraite said...

Hi Gloria...Hey, I could make a silver one in no time flat if I saved up all my Diet Coke cans! And good idea about recycling and using the money at the after-Christmas sales!!! Thanks for sharing!...Debbie

Tootsie said...

good grief! it is pretty tho.
My next door neighbor could make one out of beer cans! lol...but ...that would mean she would have to sober up to do it! lol
who ever did it...sure is creative!
my greenhouse froze up last night girl....all of my houseplants that were in there for the christmas tree and decor to fit in the house are DEAD. Froze solid.
WHEN is something good going to happen for me?
My two huge 8 foot banana trees with the 3-4 foot long leaves...are mushy and black...there is no hope to save them...I hope I can save one or two that were closer to the heater...but I am not hopeful!

Linda said...

Nothing screams Christmas like a tree made from Mountain Dew cans...better yet...Bud cans!
LOL....very funny!

Chris said...

Hey Hey, that's a beauty. now, lets see....Miller Lite for a gold tree....Bud Lite for a blue and silver tree....hummm. There's lots of possibilities here. LOL

Love Ya,
Chris

Kristen said...

This is so cool...who would have guessed

marty39 said...

This is unbelievable with the lights on. I agree, some one has way too much time but a great funny bone. Marty

Bo said...

Hi Gloria...actually this isn't a bad idea and it does look good lighted up...Mine would be gold & red with Caffeine-Free Diet Coke cans... But I don't think I'll be getting around to it anytime soon..
LOL ;-) Bo

Melissa Miller said...

YES THAT IS CUTE!!!

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

This is so funny! I get a kick out of the creativity of people- plus when they take it to recycle they will get a bundle for the alum- at least earlier this year it was a tidy price!!

Hope all is well your way!!

Lady Katherine said...

I love this tree! Think we can drink enough sodas before Christmas to make one? lol Oh I want one for my screen in back porch. Love it! Love it! I am gong back to take a better look!

Chari said...

Hey Girlfriend....

Girl, I could make this redneck Christmas tree out of all the mountain dew cans that we have! Russell drinks the stuff like I drink coffee & tea...hehe!!! I really do think it's clever...someone was very creative!!!

How are you doing today, my friend? Hope that you had a lovely weekend...we're freezing here in Colorado! Love ya Darlin'...

Chari

twizzis said...

haha If this was in Cajun-land, it would be made of beer cans! In my neck of the woods someone can make a complete living off those cans...and probably do. Thanks for the laugh, my dear friend.

ksarra said...

Happy, I think I like this!!!! The more I look at it, the more creative it seems...

mbkatc230 said...

This is a scream, but it really is pretty when it's lit. I guess if we made one out of beer cans, we would be lit instead of the tree, sorry couldn't resist! Thanks for the grin. Kathy

Tomarie said...

Oh now this is just WAY cool QG!! Hope you're having a great day! L~

Glenda said...

If we start saving cans now, we might have enough by next year. It is a very interesting concept and also very "green". I would love to see it in person. Interesting post, Gloria.

Happy To Be said...

Shelia said...

Oh, whoever drank all the Mountain Dew must have been up for days! It's supposed to have so much caffine! It is quite lovely all lighted up thought! lol

Accidents every where. I'm glad I'm off and home to enjoy it from the inside out..lol. I'll share some pictures later with you. Stay inside and warm girl..hugs ~lynne~

Rue said...

Holy smokes Gloria! That tree scares me just a little, but what mostly frightens me is that someone actually thought of it LOL

(((hugs)))

nikkicrumpet said...

If you add up the cost of all that soda...it's waaaay more than an artificial tree lol. But it sure does look purdy!

Helen said...

Ms. Gloria, you are way too funny. This is a first! A tree that won't die, doesn't need water, is 100% recycleable, won't shed, is green with red and gold! Have a wonderful holiday season.

ksarra said...

Hi Happy, Girl, I would LOVE to be snowed in, baking and listening to Christmas music. Today was cool and foggy. Each day we've had totally different weather. I'm glad to be finished shopping, and I've just started baking pecan pies and making pralines. I hope you enjoy every minute of this holiday season, you're such a sweetie.

Geri said...

That is one awesome Christmas tree. Man it's beautiful, and the best part it's all recycleable.
