I had been getting pretty cranky with making all the Christmas gifts, so in my spare time (AKA the time while gifts were drying) I made something fun for myself. I think he turned out pretty cute. Much better than the plain nutcracker he was when my mom picked him up at the Goodwill. The only problem is I didn't sand him down first and he had a glossy coat so the paint scratches off easily. I'm going to need to spray him with a coat of something or other!

Wow, he'd look great standing among my nutcracker collection!  If you can't stand to part with yours, could I steal your idea & create one for myself?  I love him.

Haha thank you all! And of course you can use the idea! Heck, I stole it from my Mom (She bought the nutcracker for HER to decorate, but she let me have it Cheesy )!
