I made some homemade crackers for tomorrows Creepmas Dinner. I don't know if these are a holiday tradition at your home, but as his Lordship is a Brit, they are at ours. The construction consists of cardboard toilet paper rolls, stuffed with salt water taffy, a joke and a black paper crown, and covered in wrapping paper. The ends are then tied off with curling ribbon. I opted for this route over conventional crackers because I am trying to reduce my waste and I had most of this stuff already.
This is one of those crafts that (as Donut over at the Potionsmith says), resulted in a lot of swearing and the occasional throwing of said craft across the table in frustration. When I began, I said to his Lordship "I will make all our crackers from now on". Needless to say, I have reneged.
