I've always wanted a life-size nutcracker... a little too much money for me so I decided to make my own...We were cleaning out the one of the old buildings on our property and I came across this old bed, when I threw it on the back of the truck I seen a nutcracker..I know weird huh!!! What a fun project...All it took was, a tin can, an old bucket, some lamp parts, paint, and a vision of a nutcracker and there he was standing on my porch ready for the season to begin...
