Thinking back on a Christmas I faintly remember as a child, we were at a family friends house. She had a white baby grand piano and her house was decorated so magnificently that I for one reason or another always remembered her set of Nutcrackers!
So I thought I would make one! I also decided to not do a whole scene because I wanted the focus to be on all of his details.
There is opportunity to accent each piece as wanted.
I happened to have these button brads on hand which were great to use in the soldiers cuff links, tail, hat, and boots.
I wanted to keep the sword realistic so I kept it in the gold scheme and added two gold brads to accent it.
The back of the soldier has one of my favorite pieces.
The little box that jets out from his back is the handle of a Nutcracker.
