DIY Holiday Cracker

Hi everyone!  I have one last Holiday craft to share with you today.  What I love about these do-it-yourself holiday crackers is that they are super fun for almost any occasion!  So if you don’t have time to make them for Christmas, why not New Years??  Or create a cute cracker as a birthday party favour!  Fun right?  Okay here is how to create your very own…

These simple brown paper packages would be easy to dress up for all sorts of occasions.  The possibilities are truly endless and I think that I need to make more… very soon.

The supplies:

Craft tubes (or paper rolls)

Paper for wrapping

String or ribbon for tying

Pick up a few small items to fill the crackers with.  I went with silly staches, mini stampers, chocolates and mini flashlights #forthewin!

For our Christmas feast I also went with simply embellishing our crackers with bakers twine, tags and these adorable reindeer (found at Target).

Begin by filling the tube with all of your goodies and the cracker strip (don’t forget that fun popper!)

Wrap the tube and tie each end with ribbon or string.  Be sure to leave enough room for guests to grab each end of the cracker strip and pull it.
