witch broom favors

Witch broom favorAll of your guests can fly high (sugar high that is) this Halloween with these fun broomstick favors. For each broomstick you’ll need:

  • Two lunch-size paper bags
  • Small branch (you could use a wooden dowel from the hardware store if you don’t have access to branches, but you’ll lose some of the spooky appeal)
  • Black twine
  • Candy

Steps:

  • Unfold one bag and push out its base (don’t tear the bottom like I did the first time) while folding in the left and right sides (see how)
  • Using scissors (or a rotor cutter and quilters mat if you have them), cut the bag into thin strips, stopping short of the base
  • Cut thin strips into the top inch of the second bag
  • Open both bags, and place the second bag inside the shredded one and fill with candy
  • Insert a small branch 1 to 1 ½ inches into the bag; cinch the top and secure it closed with black twine
