The only trouble with Halloween is that you have to wait until after it's all over before Poundland really gets to put all their Christmas bits and pieces out in full. Since the middle of September we've been getting tantalising glimpses but nothing like their full range, and as such I have tended to buy things when I have seen them or look for something after someone has posted an item of interest on The Poundland Appreciation page on Facebook.
This year their Christmas craft range is looking pretty interesting, so when I found these Paint Your Own Nutcracker tree decorations in the Birmingham shop, after first seeing them on Facebook, I knew Marc already wanted a couple and I thought I would have a couple too following that age old Poundland rule, if you don't get something when you see it you might not be able to find them again after.
I don't think I will be painting mine with the paints provided, I am thinking more along the lines of using Sharpie pens instead ..... I am also thinking that I could use my nail enamel pens or 3D Effect paints to add the little details, but before I get started I need do a little Googling to get a few ideas as to how I can really "pimp" my nutcracker ..... if you'll pardon the expression, as I feel there may be an element of competition between Marc and me when we get cracking!
