How to Create a Set of Unique Christmas Crackers

Create a unique set of personalised Christmas Crackers for your dinner table this year using the kraft brown bases and a range of festive craft supplies from Hobbycraft. There are so many ways to decorate your crackers – here are six examples!

 

 

Holly Cracker

1. Tie the cracker ends with some Merry Christmas ribbon.

2. Cover the centre section with green paper, draw three holly leaves using the silver posca pen and also three berries using the gold pen.

3. Fussy cut all the pieces out and arrange them in the centre.

Joy Cracker

1. Start by tying up the cracker ends with red and white twine.

2. Use the silver posca pen the hand write the word JOY in the centre section, then hand draw small stars and dots at either end.

Wreath Cracker

1. Tie up each cracker end using the red and white twine.

2. Attach the wreath topper to the centre section, cut a thin strip of kraft cardstock, stamp out the name using alphabet stamps and black ink then trim a fishtail cut into each end creating a banner.

3. Fix on top of the wreath using 3d foam  pads.

 

Holly Doodle Cracker

1. Use the red velvet to tie up each cracker end.

2. Use the silver posca pen to decorate the whole cracker with hand drawn holly leaves, then use the gold posca pen to add berries here and there mainly around the leaves.

Top tip! If you are left with gaps that are not big enough to fit  a holly leave then fill with a few berries.

 

Washi Tape Cracker

1. Tie up both cracker end with the Merry Christmas ribbon.

2. Use the three washi tapes to decorate the cracker, cut small squares then fix them all over the whole cracker in a random pattern.

Top tip! If you find the washi tape is not sticking down to well, use a small dab of glue to ensure they stay in place.

 

Poinsettia Cracker

1. Start by tying each cracker end with twine.

2. Attach a length of gold washi tape to each end of the cracker, fix three poinsettia to the centre section.
