This weekend, while reading one of my favorite shelter mag’s, Style at Home, I was excited to see the modern Nutcrackers. Style at Home’s alternative was to buy them at Home Sense. Unfortunately, that’s not an option for me.
While I was out urn shopping this weekend, I came across this little guy at Garden Ridge. They had a large variety of nutcrackers. I decided to start small with the $3.00 variety and see if I could accomplish what I wanted to do.
I ripped off all his hair, gave him a good sanding, and applied some white lacquer spray paint. He still needs a few touch ups; it was really too cold outside to be spray painting. But I don’t think he looks too bad, if I do say so myself. I will definitely check out Garden Ridge after Christmas to see if I can score some larger ones for less.
