I love nutcrackers. But I'm not a fan of the traditional colors with which many of them are painted. I have four or five nutcrackers that I haven't put out in a few years since they don't match my decor ... or really my wacky style in general. But I hated to see them just lying there in a box, waiting until next year ... when I probably wouldn't display them ... AGAIN! Since it *is* the season of giving and all ( ), I decided to give these guys new life, with a little paint, some yarn and clay, a sprinkle or 80 of glitter ... and *a lot* of style! And now, the two completed nutcrackers are proudly displayed, front and center, on my mantel. I can't wait to finish the others!
This is a great way to recycle old, worn-out nutcrackers. I'd love your feedback, as always!
