Now this is a one cute & simple treat to make but I think it looks absolutely fantastic!!!
You can use it as a gift all on it’s own, or use it as a cool witch-y tag for a larger treat – either way, it is sure to be well received!
All you need to make it is a licorice stick, a cello tube and some patterned paper – and I put together a FREE PRINTABLE TUTORIAL for you to make it easy for you to make some of your own – find the link to it in the post below!
Here is my Witches Broom Treat…I made two – one orange & one purple and I will gift them along with a couple of halloween colored nail polishes – you can see piccies below of the finished sets…
Isn’t it CUTE?! I absolutely love it and I promise you it is quick, easy & fun to make – you could easily make a bunch of these for class treats!
The broomstick…is simply a black Twizzler that I popped into a 1″ x 8″ Cello Tube Bag – find those perfect sized tube bags on pg 200 and in the online store by clicking HERE – and that is literally all you do to make the broomstick!
The broom…is a piece of 2 1/2″ x 12″ patterned paper – I thought that the polka dotted papers that you can find in Backgrounds Designer Series Paper Stacks (pg 185) are perfect for this:
- the orange color is Tangelo Twist from In Color 2014-15 Backgrounds DSP Stack (133705)
- the purple color is Elegant Eggplant from Regals Backgrounds DSP Stack (130139)
The paper was scored twice & the fringe was made by using the fabulous Fringe Scissors (pg 215) – if you don’t have a pair of those yet you are missing out LOL – I do not know what I would do without them these days!
I then wrapped the paper around the broomstick and finally wrapped around some Linen Thread (pg 206) to give a realistic broom look…
The tags…were made using stamps from Tee-Hee-Hee (pg 47 Holiday Catalog) and punched out using the Ticket Duo Builder Punch (pg 220) – I then pierced a small hole and attached my tag to the broom using a bow for a cute finishing touch.
These are for teacher gifts and so I wanted to add a little something extra to the package – I found some fantastic Halloween nail polish on sale at our local grocery store and popped them into 4″ x 6″ sized Cello Bags (pg 200), tied a bow around the top and added a little bat tag to each (the bat stamp is also in Tee-Hee-Hee and just LOVE how these two items look together…
And here they are both together…
Which color do you prefer? I am torn between the purple and orange – I love them both!!!
