  • Lunch-size paper bags

  • Small branch

  • Candy

  • Black twine


  1. You need two lunch-size paper bags for each broomstick. Unfold one bag, and push out its base while folding in the left and right sides.

  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.
