Dollar Store Nutcracker Makeover

So I have been on the hunt for a turquoise nutcracker lately, but didn't want to pay $20+. I was all set to make one with paper mache when I found a little one at the dollar store. The only problem was the colour.

Easy fix though - I ripped off all the fuzzy bits and anything that moved and gave him a few layers of paint and glitter glue. I then reattached everything. It's a pity I didn't pick one with even rosy cheeks (didn't notice until I got home) but for only $1.25, I can hardly complain.

I'm quite pleased with his makeover and even more pleased with the price I paid. Now if only I could find a full sized one for the same price...
