Stacey Solomon shares eBay hack to make your own crackers

Stacey Solomon

We love Stacey Solomon's mum hacks, from cleaning to crafting, this celeb mum-of-three knows her stuff! 

From her budget fake tan recommendation (it's a goodie) and her wrapping paper hack to the time she actually transformed our kitchen sink for £7.71, we love following the Loose Women presenter for her unmatched crafting knowhow.

Her latest tip involved the star making homemade Christmas crackers and she helpfully shared the process on her Instagram story. She also shared a snap of her finished crackers with the caption, "5 down 9 to go. Even if I don't get to spend Christmas with my family, they'll still get a cracker." What a cute gift idea!

Stace revealed she uses a cracker kit from eBay, which cost around £6 for 8. Alas, the kit is no longer available on site, but don't worry as we've found one very similar to buy from eBay.


This cracker kit comes with everything you need to make 12 personalised crackers, from the cracker barrels, paper hats, ribbon ties and cracker snaps (to make the bang). They've even included terrible jokes!


All you have to do is add your own small gifts to personalise your crackers.
