My wife has a fascination with Nutcrackers, and every Christmas we add several more little ones to her collection.
This year is different.
A couple months ago my wife said "I have an idea" (Usually that means I should RUN!  Laughing ) She brought up the 6 foot Nutcracker we seen last year at Costco (for something like $800) and said "why can't we just build our own?" 
The rest is kind of a blur to me  Shocked We started on them 2 months ago and just finished. Seeings how they turned out pretty cool, I wanted to share them with you fine folk.

Those are very cool! But..... what do they do when you sleep?!? They look really good and I think you could bring in some extra cash making them and selling them cheaper than the ones at stores. The body portion, legs and arms look like they might be cardboard tubes. Where did you find tubes big enough for the body portion? And again.... what do they do when you sleep?!?

Dude these are so cool.  I'm incredibly impressed.

You should also make a similar-looking costume so you can scare visitors!   Twisted Evil

It's like Toy Story, I hear them playing ball with the dogs, the King watches the BBC while the Scottish Highlander tries to get into the liquor cabinet  Laughing

The Home Depot carries 12" Cement Tubes (body), 4" PVC (arms,legs), other supplies included various cuts of wood, hot glue, wood glue, paint, material, plastic jewels, chains, paper mache on a balloon, some items stolen out of the grandkid's toy box (shhh!!), a very talented costume designer that is my wife Lisa, and my freehand face drawing/painting which is not easy anymore since my hands are not steady like they used to be.

Now THAT would be terrifying! These things are already scary enough when you get up at 2AM to get some water  Shocked Laughing

Pretty amazing considering you make them out of giant toilet-paper tubes.  geek

Dude, if you're using toilet paper that size... you might need to cut back on the spicy food!

He shouldn't need his colon cleansed, though.  If he is using that much TP, then his colon is sqeaky clean!


The nutcrackers are awesome, Jim.  They turned out amazingly.  You and your wife should be proud!

Thanks everyone! And as for the toilet paper rolls I used, they're from the industrial size TP I get at Costco  Wink Razz

Wow! Just wow! They're amazing, Jim. So very clever of you both. Overall, I love the Highlander best, but the King's crown is amazing.  Smile

My wife is jealous!  We've just found some 24" ones at our local shop, so we'll have to make do with those this year!

Well done to the both of you.  They look epic.
