Christmas crackers have always been a big part of the festive fun, but with more and more of us seeking a zero-waste lifestyle, traditional single-use crackers have started to lose their shine.

So why not make your own eco-friendly crackers? You can fill them with any plastic-free treats you fancy, and unlike most reusable crackers, these can actually be pulled apart again and again! Just add new snaps!

Even better, get the kids involved in making these crackers. It could be a fun Christmas Eve activity for the whole family!

All you will need is some paper/card (not necessarily kraft), glue, a pair of scissors, and some ribbon (or string/yarn). Then simply download the templates, print them on your home/office printer, and follow the easy instructions.

Snaps are optional of course, but if you want Christmas to go off with a bang, they can be easily found in most craft stores or from eBay / Amazon.

For the physical DIY Kit with snaps and ribbons included, please see other listings.

Not able to use this pattern right now but it'll be very useful in the future for parties, you just use different paper depending on what you need.

Quality is so high and the instructions are perfect for building them yourself!!!!!!
