Giant DIY Nutcracker
Big Nutcracker made with old buckets and pipes.
This is the final project.
Recently I applied asphalt coat to my driveway and end up with empty buckets, I don't like to throw them in th garbage but I have plenty. I decides that I need a project to used them.
I took some pipes from an old soccer net my father did for my boys long time ago and they don't use it anymore. Those were for the legs and arms.
I went to Walmart and bought the spray paint and painted them and let them dry.
Putting the pieces together
I used screws to attach the arms and cups to cover the shoulders.
For the face I cut a piece of wood for the nose and some stickers for the pupils of the eyes.
Used paint to do the rest and piece of paper to do the mouth.
Cut 2 pieces of wood to do the feet.
Started decorating the body, I used some gold tape and some stones painted in gold color.
Added the hair and beard. The hair is from a Halloween spider net and the beard is from a Winter hat.
For the sword I used 2 pieces of wood and painted them.
The hands are balls of Styrofoam.
