Homemade Christmas Crackers

These little guys have been lending a hand all week

Today we are making Christmas Crackers

You will need

Scissors, tape, paper roll, wrapping paper, ribbon, candy, ruler, pensil, paper hat, and a had written joke.


you will need a piece of wrapping paper oh about 12" by 6"

folded the way I have here



then fold the paper in between the ruler fold of 2" and clip it as I have so when you wrap the paper around your roll it will come together nicely.


I don't have ribbon on mine yet but you get the just of it.


I used the left over roll from the wrapping paper and cut it into 4" lengths. Then I stuffed it with candy, the paper hat, a joke and some surprises.

I'll decorate the table when the kids come for dinner on Christmas Eve.


I'm going to say good-bye here as I've a bunch to get done between now and the Eve.

Wishing you the best of the Christmas Holidays,

Merry Christmas

xoxo, Cindy
