DIY: Christmas Crackers

Hello friends! I have a breathtaking wedding coming up today, but first I wanted to share a DIY from our archives that’s become a bit of an SBB tradition. I love making my own crackers for the Christmas table, even if it is a bit time consuming and fiddly. But it really makes things special for your guests to have a gift you choose just for them and doubles up as a place setting. Plus, since I’m sadly not making it back to SA for the holiday season this year, these pics remind me of the last time I had Christmas lunch with my mom and dad. So enjoy, and pop back just after lunch for that wedding gorgeousness! PS All the materials below were picked up for a reasonable price from the CNA and a couple of other stores at the local mall.

DIY: Christmas Crackers

Now that the wedding craziness of last week is over, it’s time to get the family festive celebrations on the road, so I hope you’ll forgive me if we’re not completely wedding focused this week!

They’re a little fiddly and take a couple of hours, but really make things personal and extra fun at the Christmas table. And for South African readers I picked up most of the necessaries at my local CNA, so everything’s easily available locally for a spot of last-minute DIY. These would be great favours for a holiday wedding or even another time of year with different decoration!
