WOW  Shocked Shocked Shocked The gallery is EXPLODING! I really love the gourd birdhouse that Beeker made, and everything I have seen! Can't wait to receive too Smiley

Only because I know that my partner, SweetYetEvil, already received, here is a quick teaser-pic of one of the items I made for her:



I was so excited about this little guy, I HAD to post!!!

Here's a tute showing how I made him, and how u can make your own for less than $2:

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Day Of The Dead Christmas Nutcracker (Written Tutorial) on: December 05, 2013 03:50:59 AM


I recently made this nutcracker for SweetYetEvil, my partner in the Christmas Stocking Swap:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=427490.0#axzz2hVVDFaMj

And, I made him for LESS THAN $2 WORTH OF MATERIALS! Here's how you can do the same:

1) Purchase a wooden nutcracker at Dollar Tree, or another discount or thrift store.
2) Strip the nutcracker of all accoutrements, including beard/hair, etc.
3) Spray paint nutcracker FLAT BLACK (Walmart 97 cent brand).
4) Paint details with acrylic--whatever style you like.
5) Seal nutcracker with clear gloss spray paint (Krylon).
6) Once dry, glue on beard and hair...I used faux fur I had, but you could reglue the same hair it already had if u saved it from step #2).
7) Glue on any ribbons or additional items Smiley

Here's more shots of the one I made:











Thanks for looking!
