There’s nothing like mixing new decorations with old ones to give that feeling of seasonal warmth! This traditionally styled Nutcracker amigurumi will stand smartly to attention as part of a festive shelf arrangement or perhaps displayed on the mantle

The Nutcracker makes a wonderful Christmas decoration or toy - The perfect addition to a Christmas Eve box for the children with the classic story of the ‘The Nutcracker’. Or maybe for a ballet fan just before going to see the magical ‘Nutcracker’ on stage somewhere near you during the holiday season.
