What Will Santa Leave Under Your Beer Can (or Bottle) Christmas Tree?

I'm sure Martha Stewart and my interior designer wife, Sandy, would would throw disappointed glances in the direction of these crafty beer drinkers, but in our current hard economic times let's face it: the cost of a fresh cut Christmas tree is just not in the budget for many Americans.

You can still get into the mood of the holiday season and all you need are the contents of your recycle bin. Lyke2Drink has chronicled beer can Christmas trees in the past and felt like it was time to revisit this timeless holiday tradition.

Obviously, the elves behind these creations have differing points of view on key design elements. Some prefer bottles, while others go for cans. Some are devoted to single brands, while others are a bit more flexible and like to experiment with color.

Here's wishing you a happy holiday season. Now get drinking. That tree just won't grow on its own.
