Altered Nutcracker by Michelle

Michelle Bertuzzi created the most adorable nutcracker using patterned paper, SRM stickers, and modge podge!

Michelle started by using pieces of patterned paper for his jacket and crown;

Michelle added a 'Happy Holidays" sticker around the crown;

In this photograph, you can see how Michelle used border stickers for his belt and drum. She simply 'painted' the drumsticks using a marker;

Michelle then went to work on his legs and boots, again using border stickers;

More border stickers were used to decorate the base -- even the little snowman's hat!

What a fun and inspiring project, Michelle! Have a great weekend and join us next week for more!

I would not think to alter a nutcracker. Great job. Your embellishments look like they should be there.
