According to German folklore, nutcrackers were given as keepsakes to bring good luck to your family and protect your home. Decorative Christmas Nutcrackers come in all shapes and sizes. To start your collection purchase a King 1st protectors, guards and military, next select his servants and subjects cooks, bakers, jesters, gardeners etc. Have fun choosing ones that you like or relate to. There are many to choose from at Miss Cayce’s Christmas store.
To decorate with nutcrackers, choose a prominent spot to display, such as a mantel. Collections show off better when grouped in mass. Our theme is nutcrackers, now decide on the color story, this will narrow your choices when buying ribbon and florals. Clear the surface, leaving everyday décor such as the lamps to incorporate in your design. Depending on the width of the mantel, a faux pine garland, greenery or florals sprays would be great.
Here we choose to use fabric for color and placed on the mantel. Start with a large king (keep size and proportion in mind for balance) and continue decorating with the guards and soldiers protecting our king! A gorgeous arched swag is hung on the face of this mantel. The final touch of ribbon completes the look.
The lamp shades are dressed in royal gold and jewel toned bows and accented with florals. This mantel is fit for a King! Start your collection today! Learn to tie the perfect bow with our Show Me Decorating App!
