I hope you’re enjoying your weekend and the cold hasn’t stopped you from getting out and about. However if you are safely wrapped up inside you may want to try this super quick and very thrifty Christmas craft. If the above video doesn’t work, feel free to nip over to my A Thrifty Mrs YouTube channel to watch it there. You can subscribe to my channel here, it’s free and you’ll never miss another video.
These are pretty simple and easy homemade Christmas crackers – my v quick video (above) shows how to make them in around 2 minutes. Now they don’t whizz or bang but they do pull apart well and if you feel inclined to add the ‘bang’ element you can pick them up in craft shops. Mini versions will look great strung together or placed on your Christmas tree and of course it is up to you what you decide to fill them with – or if they’re for decoration if you’re going to fill them at all. Our crackers are filled with mini candy canes.
