i really loved these west elm nutcrackers i spied in their christmas catalog this year.
then, of course i thought to just try to make my own version.
so, i headed to my nearest thrift store and found two handsome guys, for only $2 a piece.
i pulled off their hair and facial hair, sanding off the extra bits (sounds mean, huh?) and, one can of white spray paint later, here are the two handsome fellas now over my fireplace…
i thought they were pretty fun!
and, it all cost me less than $8!
