Nutcracker Christmas Stairway Silhouettes

It's Christmastime in our home!!! 
At Michaels Craft store recently all of their Halloween crafts were about 80% off. 
I picked up one of Martha Stewart Crafts' Silhouette for just under $2.00!

 ....Wouldn't this would be perfect Christmas decoration if I added a few of my own black paper cutouts that could include other Nutcracker characters? I thought so too!

So all I did was draw a tiny sword for one rat, a full sized nutcracker, and little girl with the nutcracker doll in pencil on black (actually chalkboard paper) and cut it out :) I didn't trace it, but it probably would have been better if I did. I love drawing so it wasn't time consuming or difficult, it was just a fun little craft.
 Here are the results! 

Be Blessed!
