Recycled Christmas Crackers – Editor’s Weekend Tip No 2
Susan Penny shows you how to turn some scraps into miniature crackers
If your drawers are full of brown paper grocery bags, then this Christmas cracker project is a great way to recycle them into something pretty. With advent just round the corner, these miniature crackers are a great project for the weekend. The crackers are made from a tightly rolled tube of thin cardboard covered in a larger rectangle of brown paper. Add strips of ripped paper from an old book to the ends. Pull in with sparkly thread, then decorate with holly leaves and hearts cut from felt. Use beads for holly berries, then finish with glue and glitter. A great Saturday morning project for you and the kids. Have fun crafting this weekend.
