Nutcrackers are one of my favorite Christmas motifs, especially when they are modernized to my taste (like these all-white beauties) and for certain, these Nutcracker silhouettes resting on the fireplace mantle will be added to my to-do list this season.
Rebecca at The Crafted Sparrow has been saying "no" to requests for nutcrackers in their Christmas decor simply because the colors didn't go with her design taste. Still, the request didn't fall on completely deaf ears, and she came up with her own project to satiate the need for nutcrackers and sophisticated design. She traced found images onto tall canvases, and painted them in a classic gray. Everyone was pleased with the outcome, and they are a beautiful statement piece in her home!
