Homemade Christmas Crackers

Homemade crackers are the best because you can make each one personal. Plus, you can put two bangs in each one for an extra surprise! 

You will need:
A toilet roll per cracker + 2 extra
Wrapping paper - nothing to thick, as it has to rip easily.
Matching ribbon 
Cracker bangs
Christmas hats and jokes (the worse the better)
Various presents - games, posh chocolates, mini liqueur bottles, homemade gifts etc
Name tags if they are personalised 


Step 1: Measure out the wrapping paper so that it is as wide as 3 toilet rolls and wraps all the way around them. 

Step 2: Stick the bang to the inside of the middle toilet roll. Fill with hats/jokes/presents.

Step 3: Using the string, carefully tighten each end of the cracker. 

Step 4: Remove the string. You may want to make small cuts in the paper at the joins, as this makes them easier to break. Tie each end with ribbon.

Step 5: Remove the 2 extra toilet rolls. Decorate the crackers with place names, ribbons, holly etc.
