Homemade Christmas Crackers

Good morning everyone! My mum has finally arrived from Canberra to stay over Christmas! YAY!!
Of course, the first morning is spent playing with craft. We are making our own Christmas Crackers together and we would like to enter them into the challenge over at 52CC Throwdown - Crackers!!

Using two pieces of co-ordinating tissue paper we have wrapped it around 3 individual paper rolls. Once secured we tied ribbon around the ends of the middle roll to create the cracker shape.

We have used a heap of different bits and pieces from all sorts of decorations etc. to bling up our crackers :)

We will be filling them with homemade Christmas hats, jokes and small gift.

We are having so much fun and have a few more to make. 

We have also been busy making our centrepiece for our Christmas table.

And some close ups of the bits and pieces

Our Christmas Wreath Centrepiece will be entered into the following challenges -
