  2. Using scissors, cut the bag into thin strips, stopping short of the base. Cut thin strips into the top inch of the second bag.

  3. Open both bags, and place the second bag inside the shredded one; fill with candy.

  4. Insert a small branch 1 inch into the bag; cinch the tops of both bags, and secure with black twine.
