A witches broom!
I got this idea from the one and only MARTHA Stewart! Her version is a little different, obviously hers is perfection, mine is a different kind of perfection!
I did the witch's broom, but the others look just as cute and just as simple!
(The doesn't have to be perfect type of perfection!)
You will need:
A brown paper lunch bag.
Any type of stick or dowel for your broom stick.
Some type of ribbon, raffia, or whatever you have on hand.
Cut the bag in strips until you get to the crease of the bottom of the bag.
That's where the treats are going to go.
Then put your candy in your tissue paper. Put the tissue paper inside the bottom of the bag and put the stick in the middle of both. I twisted the tissue paper around the stick and then used my raffia to tie around the bag to bring them all together. My stick had lots of notches in it, so I didn't have a problem with it slipping off. If you use a wooden dowel, you might have to hot glue it to the bag.
That's all it is!
Now you've got yourself a witch's broomstick full of candy for your neighbor or sister friends!
I spray painted my stick black, but only because I have a spray paint addiction and think I have to do it to EVERYTHING! Totally optional!
The candy I used to fill my bag, Werther's caramels, I was going to use candy corn, but I wanted something wrapped.
I couldn't get a great picture of it, they are much cuter on person. You have to do them! I'm sure you have everything at your house to whip one of these up in 5 minutes!
Then tie a little message on it, and you've got yourself a festive gift!
