A Christmas cracker is a given on any Christmas table in the UK but making your own Christmas crackers really does add a more personal touch.
As any Brit knows Christmas is hardly complete without a cracker on the table. Traditionally filled with a paper hat, a joke, and a small gift the wonderful thing about making your own Christmas crackers is that you can fill them with whatever you like or even personalise them to each guest!
To make Christmas crackers, you need scissors, toilet rolls, string, paper of your choice and a sprig of pine, star anise or cinnamon stick as decoration.
Step 1: Cut your paper into a rectangle roughly 30 x 20cm.
Step 2: Place the toilet roll in the middle of paper and roll the paper around the toilet roll. Tape the paper into place if you need to.
Step 3: Tie one end of the Christmas cracker shut with a piece of string or lace.
Step 4: Put a small surprise in the Cracker, such as a piece of candy, Christmas tree decoration or a personalised gift for each of your guests. Then tie the other end shut in the same way.
Step 5: Finally, decorate your Christmas cracker with star anise, a cinnamon stick or whatever you prefer. Now the Christmas cracker is ready!
Making Christmas crackers is a perfectly simple Christmas craft to do with all the family and adds a truly personal touch to the Christmas table.
We hope your guests will appreciate that you made your very own Christmas crackers this year! Merry Christmas from us to you!
