Christmas Tree Showdown

Pure American Genius: A Hobart Christmas Tree

We asked for your Christmas trees, America, and we have begun to receive. A listener sends his personal festival of lights. Don't be intimidated, y'all. Instructions after the bump.

From the listener's YouTube post:

I made this sculpture out of a Hobart C2 20qt mixer and my father's ties that we gave him for Christmas as kids. I put glow sticks because I could no find battery lights.
