Colorful Nutcrackers

 
 
As Christmas marches closer and closer, my little Colorblocked Nutcrackers march along in a straight line as well.  {Can anyone believe Christmas day is in FIVE days, ah!}
 
I bought these unfinished nutcrackers at Hobby Lobby at a wonderful price.  They sat for a while as I decided what to do with these little guys.
 
I finally decided to go with simple color blocking.  After one nice coat of white spray paint, my nutcrackers were ready for some color.
 

I used a gold foil paint pen to color each of their stands.

Using various shades of green and blue acrylic paint (which appear to be my go-to colors of choice these days), I painted their hats.

Since I completed these little guys, my kiddos have been marching around the house going, “March, march, march.”

Happy FIVE days until Christmas time!
