Tiny Christmas Crackers
The perfect decoration for the Christmas tree has to be a cracker! Make a tiny one for your dolls’ tree!

THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED:

Stick or straw
Tissue paper
Patterned tape
Glue
Scissors
String

HERE’S HOW!

1             Cut the stick (or straw) to 1.5 cm.

2             Cut a piece of the tissue paper of about 5 x 5 cm. If you make a similar piece in another colour then the cracker is especially attractive.

3             Place the stick in the middle of the paper and mark the short sides.

4             Then fold the paper from the sides into the markings.

5             Make small cuts up to the markings so that it is fringed.

6             Apply glue in the middle of the tissue paper and then roll it around the stick.

7             Wrap the patterned tape around so that it is attached.

8             Cut a piece of string, about 10 cm. Tie the ends around the fringes.

9             Prepared and ready to hang on the dolls’ Christmas tree!

Christmas wreath for the door
The door wreath certainly is a classic among Christmas decorations.

THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED:

Firm cardboard, preferably green
Tissue paper, green
Nice thread, perhaps in gold

HERE’S HOW!

1             Draw a circle of about 3 cm in diameter on the paper. Then draw a smaller circle of about 1,5 cm in diameter inside the big one.

2             Cut out both the large circle and the circle inside it. This gives you a ring that is the base for the wreath.

3             Cut out lots of small pieces of tissue paper, about 2 x 2 cm and crumple them up into small balls.

4             Put glue on the cardboard circle and press on the balls of tissue paper so that they completely cover it.

5             Then twist the gold thread around the entire wreath. If you want you can tape the back so that the thread stays in place.
