west elm inspired nutcrackers

Last year, Allison from House of Hepworths fell head-over-heels for some fabulous nutcrackers in the West Elm catalog.  But at almost $30 each (or $60 for a larger model), she couldn’t justify buying them.  Not when she knew she could make them!  You won’t believe the “before” picture of these guys; they were pretty hideous when she found them at Dollar Tree.  A few modifications later, their mod makeover made a world of difference!  [how to make mod nutcrackers]

Project estimate:

  • Nutcracker, $1 and up
  • Spray paint, on hand or $1 and up

Total:  $1 and up
