It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

I've always loved The Nutcracker....to me it just means Christmas is near. I would love to use the traditional wooden nutcracker in my home to decorate for Christmas. The problem is I like my Christmas decorations to match the rest of the house. I'm just never going to be one of those people that can put a giant red Santa and brightly colored ornaments everywhere. So when I saw this:
on one of my favorite blogs 4 Men 1 Lady, I knew I had to make my own. I put this photo in the back of my mind, and kind of forgot about it (I know #winning) until I came across these in Dollar Tree:
ya know, the store where everything is $1...meaning this project cost me $2.....yea...
I did a little hair removal and sprayed them gold (surprise, surprise)..
and now I'm in love:
bad phone pic warning...
Yes, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around these parts:

 Now, let's hear from you? Are you a red and green only Christmas decorator? Are you like me and make your decorations match the rest of your home? Any totally crazy schemes out there? I want to know!
I've linked this project up at:

  2. So cute, you should seriously consider writing a book (or at least another blog) just about making things fabulous by just using spray paint, seriously I know you say you took this idea, but the rest of your ideas are so clever!

  3. Oh, my, gosh, these look great. I have some of those nutcrackers in boxes I do not use to decorate with. I am getting them out and doing this. Thanks for the idea.

  5. They look great! For only two dollars, that's awesome! Each year I try to stick to a theme, this year its a blue Christmas, even though little bits of red had popped here and there!
