Give your favorite nutcracker a new look with a glass block, some shiny metallics and lots of ribbon! Find the perfect supplies to match your nutcracker, then deck it out for the holidays.
Make a bow
Make a 9" bow on the Bowdabra®.
Lay block down
Lay the glass block down so the opening is facing the back.
Place duct tape
Tear off a 5" piece of duct tape and tape it to the top center of the glass block.
Wrap a ribbon around the left and right side of the glass block. Hot glue the ends together.
Glue the bow to the center of the ribbon and duct tape.
Stabilize the nutcracker
Cut 1" square pieces of scrap cardboard. Hot glue them into the bow around the base of the nutcracker to help stabilize it.
Glue holiday picks into the bow.
Remove the glass block backing. Take 1 sheet of foil and wrap it around a strand of lights. Turn lights on to shine through the foil tissue.
