Pale Nutcracker

We visited my sister and her cute fam a few weekends ago 
and I fell in love with how she had decked out her 
dining table with pasty white nutcrackers.  
So classic and understated but still fun and whimsical.  

My sister bought hers at Goodwill, The Dollar Store, and Jo Ann Fabrics 
and spray painted them with a glossy white.  

West Elm used to sell these guys.  Love the neutral look, probably would have hated the price tag.  I'm thinking that I'm going to hoard these guys when they go on major clearance after Christmas at Michaels, etc. Next year (if i remember that I bought them!) I will give them a little spray job and throw them on the mantle or dining table.

And if you like something a little more colorful, I saw these at Class and Trash the other day.  They were in great shape $8 for the small guys and $10 for the big.  They were so pretty I don't think I could have taken the old spray can to their cute little faces.  Plus they have hair and I think spray painting fake hair is gross.  Side Note: My sister removed the hair from  hers.  Also gross but totally necessary!
