Snowman in the Nut Chopper ?

 

Hello Friends!

Last week was the last Flea Market for the year for us.

Time to get busy with other things....

This NUT CHOPPER was left over from our sale and I just decide

to give it another chance and repurpose it.

Now it's a Christmas item !




I had some 1/4''packing foam to use at the base of the jar.


It was easy to cut with scissors.




I had some bleached trees in my stash.


They just needed a dab of white paint


and some glitter.





When the lid was on tight, I put a piece of 


tape on the jar to mark the front.




I glued my homemade clay snowman in place.

Then added the trees.




Covered the foam base with loose glitter.




I cut a piece of foam to cover the blade and to 

keep anything from falling inside.












Then my Husband said- Too bad you can't put lights inside!


Well, I took out the foam and looked around for a tea light.


I was surprised it fit perfect!








I turned the tea light upside down

with the switch up.






I put the small piece of foam packing


back on to cover the top.


It can easily be pinched out to


 expose the on and off switch.





The small tea light puts off a lot of light.




And the handle can still turn- I liked that




Just for fun!



I have one last Craft Show this weekend,

I will be taking the nut chopper with me.

Update: This little cutie SOLD


Have a blessed day!
