Hello friends. Happy Thursday! My friends and I are sharing pretty Christmas craft ideas today that take 30 mins or less.
Today I want to share how to make a Gingerbread Man Christmas Cracker. They are so easy to make.
You will need:
Brown Construction Paper
Pink, black paint
Small toys, Candies etc
Christmas Cracker Popper (Optional)
Cut approximately 3 inches off the top construction paper or cut to desired size.
Fold each side equally into the middle of the paper as shown.
Cut small triangles at the edge of the fold as shown.
These don’t have to be perfect. They will just help with the scrunching of the cracker.
Roll paper to form a tube and cut off the excess.
Hot glue tube together or use double sided tape.
Use a piece of twine, string or elastic to close the top of the cracker.
Use little toys, candies, paper crowns etc to place inside the untied side of the tube.
Tie the other side of the tube.
Use puffy paint to paint the ‘icing’ as you wish. Paint in eyes cheeks and other fun designs.
Allow paint to dry and tie a ribbon around the top.
I also cut around the head to round the top of the head.
Unfortunately, the photos I had taken are not loading on my camera card and I only have these two.:(
But I think you get the idea. 🙂
