Santa is cool beans on an old greenbean can. He has a curly wire handle and an expression you just have to love.

My last Christmas post, I promise. I just had to show off my Santa can. I'm sure you have seen these before, but isn't it a great way to recycle those BIG greenbean cans?

artteachergirl writes: :-) Glad it gave you an idea! Check with a school cafeteria for a huge can and then you won't have to eat all those green beans. You have a cute idea going on. Posted: 5:56 pm on January 25th

I was going to use galvanized buckets for the kids stockings next year and put their names on them but I like this idea of using an old large can and instead of Santa's face will use my favorite picture of the kids I will take this coming year, thanks again!! Now will have to find a way to use a gallon of green beans for just two! Posted: 3:12 pm on January 24th
