This is one very cute, easy to make and very economical Halloween treat! 

You can use it as a gift all on it’s own, or use it as a cool witchy 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 – easy, quick & fun!

Here is my tutorial so that you can make your own DSP Witches Broom Treat – at the end of this tutorial you will find a printable version too so that you can print it out and keep it for reference.

Supplies that I used to make this broom:

  • 124134  1″x 8″ Cello Tube bag
  • Stick of licorice or other black stick candy
  • Patterned Paper
  • 133325  Fringe Scissors
  • Sticky Strip
  • Tag & thread

The broomstick:

Pop a licorice stick into a Cello Tube bag and seal – and that’s it!

The broom:

Cut a piece of patterned paper to measure 12″ x 2 1/2″ – I used a piece of Tangelo Twist polka dotted paper from In Color 2014-16  DSP Stack (pg 185)…

Place into your scoring tool (with a short edge along the top) and make 2 score lines – one at 1/2″ and the second at 1″…

Here is a close up of how your score lines will be spaced…

Next you need to fringe the lower edge…you can do this very quickly & easily using Fringe Scissors…use them to cut up to the lower score line – if you don’t have fringe scissors, you can use Paper Snips or a paper trimmer to do the same thing…

Once done, do the same along the narrower top edge…

And this is what your strip will look like once you are done…

The un-cut length in the center provides the space for your adhesive tape…turn over your paper and apply strong adhesive tape along that line – I used Sticky Strip…

Then take your cello tube with the licorice stick inside and start rolling your piece of paper around it…

This is how it will look when done…

Next tie around the thread of your choice – I used Linen Thread for mine…
