Handmade Christmas Crackers

Give your table a personal touch with handmade Christmas crackers. Fill with a small gift, a note or a photo and your event will have a super-personal touch. These are so easy kids can do it on their own – but it makes a great family craft too. You will need:

  • Brown craft paper
  • Neon paper (From any office supply store)
  • Avery neon dot stickers
  • Yarn or string to tie the ends
  • Wide, flat ribbon
  • TP roll
  • Tape

Fill the tube with photo, note or gift. Cut craft paper  so that there are an extra 2-3 inches on either end. Tape seam and tie ends with yarn. Next, add the Avery dots. Cut a 2 inch wide strip of the neon paper. Wrap this around the roll and secure with tape. Layer the flat ribbon over top. We put initials on an craft paper circle (to keep with the polka-dot theme). This was secured with glue. We hope you have fun making these. We’ve also included a more “formal” version with tissue paper. These would look great in a variety of colours! Happy creating. Please post pictures of your crackers should you make them :o)
