Making your own DIY Christmas crackers is fun and such a great gift to give your guests this Christmas.
The Christmas crackers that you buy in the store usually have cheap plastic toys that no one wants. Why not fill your own Christmas crackers with treats that everyone will love?
Ready to make your own? Let’s get started!
Here is what you need to make the DIY Christmas crackers.
- tissue paper
- toilet paper rolls
- cracker snaps (optional)
- printables cut out (see below)
- double-sided tape
- twine or ribbon
- Take a long sheet of tissue paper and fold it in half lengthwise. Then cut it in half at the width.
- Optional: (I really wanted to do this part but ran out of time) tape crackers snaps to the inside of the toilet paper rolls.
- Take your toilet paper roll to the edge of the folded part of the tissue paper in the middle and tape it down.
- Roll the tissue paper around the toilet paper roll and tape at the end.
- Now take the printable (cut to toilet paper roll size) and roll it along the toilet paper roll. Tape it at the back.
- Tie one end with ribbon.
- Fill your cracker with Christmas goodies.
- Tie the other end.
