If you are feeling like making this Christmas a crafty one, why not have a go at making your own Christmas crackers? Last year, we teamed up to with Cath Kidston to run a series of in store cracker making workshops and also worked together on a festive blog tutorial to show you how to make DIY crackers at home.
You'll just need some pretty patterned papers, festive ribbons, a handful of co-ordinating trims, tape and scissors to follow our guide to create professional and stylish handmade Christmas crackers for your dinning table this year. Not forgetting those all important cracker snaps! After all, what is a cracker if it doesn't go bang?
You can find our step by step tutorial to making Christmas Crackers on the Cath Kidston blog. Grab your scissors and settle in for a crafty evening making these Christmas day essentials! It's the perfect excuse to enjoy a mince pie and a hearty mug of mulled wine too!
Then fill your crackers with your own personal gifts, handwritten messages and bad jokes to entertain your guests around the dinner table.
Is 2017 set to be a crafty Christmas for you?
