Nutcracker Christmas Tree Decorations | Nanny Anita

Pinterest is this sort of a terrific useful resource for concepts. I have experienced some superb Christmas crafts pop up on mine for months now, and these Nutcracker ones by Fire fires and mud pies really took my fancy. But I assumed, why prevent there? Why not do a ballet established of Nutcracker Christmas tree decorations. To me, heading to see the Nutcracker ballet is a big portion of my Xmas traditions.

Make absolutely sure you stick to my Xmas craft board on Pinterest for far more tips. Do not ignore to help save the pin for afterwards. 

To make your have established of Nutcracker Xmas tree decorations you will want:

  • Craft sticks – regular and little sized ones
  • Picket peg
  • Wool
  • Pom pom maker
  • Paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Pencil
  • Feather
  • Gems/sequins
  • Small pom pom
  • Ribbon/string
  • Glue gun
  • Great tipped pens

To make the Sugar Plum Fairy

Begin out by painting on the hair, footwear, and leotard of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

If you do not have a pom pom maker, then you can wrap the wool all-around your fingers and make 1 that way. It is just less difficult to do it with a pom pom maker. After you have wound all your wool and minimize it, insert your peg into the center of the maker. That way when you wrap the last piece of wool around the middle of the pom pom to secure it all in position, it will be tied to the peg doll. Safe it all with a glue gun.

Alternatively, and a lot a lot easier, you could usually use cupcake wrappers to make the tutu.

Use a fantastic tipped pen to draw on the facial options.

Finally glue some string to the back again of the head so that you can dangle your Sugar Plum Fairy up.

To make the King Rat

Employing 2 regular and 1 compact (you can often slice 1 standard sized stick in fifty percent) sized craft stick make an isosceles triangle.   Glue all the items into place.

To make the Nutcracker

Lay 5 usual sized craft sticks following to every other. Glue a different craft stick diagonally across them to hold them all in location.

Convert it over and glue a smaller craft adhere horizontally throughout the 5 to build the brim of his hat. I would glue it a little bit below the 50 % way mark.

Paint your hat.

Draw on your nutcrackers facial features and paint them in.

To make the nose, slash the close off the rounded end of a craft adhere. This may possibly acquire a handful of tries, as the sticks are susceptible to snap. Adhere it on to your nutcrackers encounter.
