I love toy soldier nutcrackers but couldn’t find any that were “just right” so I bought a cheap one & spray painted it with white primer. Then I sprayed it with adhesive & sprinkled clear glitter on it. It came out better than I could have imagined. I think it looks like snow & it catches the light beautifully.
MY TIP: For best results be sure to use a nutcracker without any hair or fabric.
