Get inspired to create a wonderful collection of handmade holiday decorations for a child or grandchild to treasure. Teacher and author Betty Padden shows how to carve memorable ornaments to keep or give to family and friends. Imagine a tree decorated with your own beautifully carved angels, elves, polar bears, poinsettias, and more. Step-by-step projects are divided into three categories-beginning, intermediate, and advanced. A special section on painting covers basic concepts of blending, highlighting and shading, so that even a novice can get great results. The best ornaments on the Christmas tree are always the ones that are handmade. 64 pages, softcover, Copyright 2014, ISBN: 978-1-56523-843-5.
