Get inspired to create a wonderful collection of handmade holiday decorations for a child or grandchild to treasure. Popular woodcarving 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. Youíre sure to have a merry carving experience with these fun projects, color photographs, and original patterns.
