Why waste money on store-bought crackers stuffed with cheap plastic gifts when you could make your own designer versions?

Cut decorative paper into lengths and wrap snugly around each roll with a 4cm overhang at each end to disguise the bangers you will later thread in. Secure paper around roll with double-sided tape.

Cut out a piece of your selected fabric and roll around the paper. Secure fabric onto your cracker using double-sided tape.

Place a banger through each cracker, then fill it with trinkets.

Carefully twist the overhang and secure with ribbon.

Place on your Christmas table and enjoy!
