Red gingerbread dough painted with red food coloring was used for the look of stained wood. The nuts in the bowl, the green bag, head and votive candle were made from molded Rice Krispie treats covered with fondant. The hair is thin rice vermicelli. A Dremel, level, rulers, drill, sanding block, and paint brushes were used to build the Santa nutcracker.
