We have a couple of nutcrackers that I’ve used for our Christmas decorations since our kids were babies. I looked at them one day and they inspired this project. It has been one of my most complicated but most fun to put together. I had to make the head several times until it looked just right. The nutcracker is not only suitable for decor, it’s also a gift card or trinket holder because the base is a matchbox. It would look great on a mantle as well!
