Hello Lovelies, with one week to go until the big day I thought it was a good idea to get on with making my Christmas crackers today.
I know these are not a worldwide tradition so HERE is a bit of background in case you are not familiar.
I started off by making the paper hats from brown paper. I simply cut strips slightly longer than the circumference of my head and glued the two ends together. Then I folded them concertina style and cut one end to a point, make the crown shape. I added an embellishment made from cut up old Christmas cards to add a festive touch.
I found some topical "cracker jokes" online...they are supposed to be corny..... and chose the least political ones for the 5 crackers I needed to make. Christmas dinner is a one household affair this pandemic year. Fine for us, but it's a shame mum can't join us....well it's permitted but not worth the risk.
Roll up as neatly as possible
