A Texas man finds a new use for his empty beer cans.

One Fort Worth man is turning his past-time of drinking into a passion for decorating.

Louis Torres is blanketing the outside of his home with what we throw away everyday.

At a minimum 75 strands of wire hang countless beer cans: from Torres's tree to his fence to his house.

"I was just doing just the straight cans straight and then my daughter said why don't you take a razor blade and cut them where they'll look like christmas ornaments," Torres explained.

He won't say whether or not he drank all of it, put he doesn't pay for all of it.

"I have came home from work before and there would be a couple of 12 packs sitting at my gate, somebody came by just gave them to me, several times, several times," said Torres.

He gets as much foot traffic as a brewery.

"I've had a couple that were going to get married and they came back here and took their pictures back here," Torres said.

After all, one man's trash is another man's pleasure.
