Candlestick Holder with Carol Singer inside Christmas TreeCandlestick Holder with Carol Singer inside Christmas Tree
By: Ian Salisbury
In this photo tutorial, Ian Salisbury uses an inside-out turning to create a lovely Christmas Tree. He then forms a foot to hold the tree up and then turns a candlestick holder on the top. To really fancy up this great project, he turns a Christmas Carol Singer including a song book and inserts that figurine into the center of the Christmas tree.

And although this project has multiple considerations, Ian's excellent pictures and descriptions make this something that you too can make!

We hope that you'll give this project a try and send us photos of your results!
