Christmas crackers DIY

At last! It’s been year since I wanted to make my own Christmas Crackers. They are ready for Christmas’ Eve. Here is a DIY to make your own Christmas crackers.

I never bought some for I thought it was expensive and the gifts weren’t that funny. But I wanted to have some for Christmas Eve. My children quite agreed and motivated me for this Christmas.

I gathered small presents from charity shops and even made a small souvenir from the Sea ( a tiny bottle, sand, a piece of coral and seaside flowers – I think it’s so nice). I was ready to make my own crackers. It’s simple: it’s only about mastering the wrapping.
