Fabric crackers are a sustainable twist on a much loved tradition, bring a treat to Autumn gatherings or get ahead for Christmas. Make them with Emma’s new Woodland Walk Napkins, then use them during your meal. This is a lovely mindful activity you can do in the Autumn sunshine or for the festive season, sure to get you in the hygge mood.

A first for Emma Britton homeware, Limited Edition Woodland Walk Napkins feature a wonderfully evocative pattern of teasel seed heads, larch trees, coppery grasses and berries on a beautiful oatmeal coloured organic cotton, screen printed in the UK. Scroll for How to Make Fabric Crackers below.

A set of two Woodland Walk  Napkins (£24) comes tied with jute string and a swing tag for plastic free, easy gifting. Up-cycled olive green glassware (designed and decorated at Emma’s studio) echoing the napkin design in beautiful silhouettes is available to make a set.

Make Fabric Crackers

To make the fabric crackers with Emma’s Woodland Walk Napkins you will need:

  • Emma Britton Woodland Walk Napkins
  • Cardboard Tube
  • Treats for inside
  • Pretty twine, raffia or ribbon – we used some from Nutscene
  • Scissors

We used coloured twine and vintage scissors from our friends at Nutscene. To match the greens and reds in Emma’s design. And filled the crackers with homemade treats.

  • Lay your napkin flat, with the pattern facing up, place cardboard tube in centre.
  • Fill your cardboard tube with treats, try wildflower seeds, sweets, gin miniatures or tiny toys!
  • Gently roll Emma’s Woodland Walk Napkin around the tube.
  • Cut two lengths of twine or ribbon, long enough to tie into a bow.
  • Pinch the napkin around the ends of the tube. And tie each end/pull tight the twine with a bow twine bow.
