DIY Christmas Crackers

November 29, 2012 by post tags

What better way to dress up your Christmas table & give your guests a little treat than with a few crackers! To make things easy – most of these items for today’s DIY should already be in your home.

Step 1: What you need:

  1. Recycled toilet roll inners – 1 per cracker
  2. Treats to stuff the crackers
  3. Napkins – 1 per cracker
  4. Ribbon
  5. A name tag for each guest (optional) as placeholders

Step 2: Stuff, roll & tie

Stuff your toilet roll with a selection of treats, roll up in the napkin and tie both ends of napkin on either side so it resembles a cracker. Add a name tag to customise for each guest if you like – I’ve used a selection from the Blankspace Xmas Range.

Step 3: Set your table

Set your table & enjoy the celebrations! :)

How To – Smouldering Eyes for Winter

We’ve decided to use the basic technique of achieving a smokey eye, but instead of the dark colours we opted for a combination of copper, brown and cranberry eye-shadows to create a warm winter look. With Ida Webster’s help we put together an easy, step-by-step tutorial for this shimmering smokey eye make-up look, that you can try at home.
