halloween “in the house”: witch’s broom treat bags

How. HOW did we go from popsicles to Halloween already???

Yet here we are, so let’s get to it!

You know that if I’m sharing a craft on these pages, it’s going to be super-duper easy – and these “witch’s broom” treat bags are no exception.

This is what I like to call a “TV”craft – one that’s easy to do while you’re binge-watching your favorite show. Probably not “The Crown” or “Better Call Saul” (where you need to pay full attention – or is that just me?), but definitely “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”.

Not only is this craft really easy, it requires very few materials and zero special tools.

Witch’s Broom Treat Bags
adapted from Martha Stewart

for each bag you will need:
(2) flat-bottomed paper bags  – I used these paper sacks (you could also use regular paper lunch bags; I’d cut  4″ – 5″ off the top if you do)
1 “branch” – you could use a branch or other stick – I used these cute straws instead
ribbon or twine
tag
candy

Push out the bottom of one bag, while keeping the sides folded in.** Cut thin strips down to the base. Cut 1″ – 2″ strips along the top of the second bag, and place inside the first bag. Fill with your treat and place the “branch” inside. Secure with ribbon and add your tag.

**Note: I placed 2 bags inside a third for the “shredded” ones, so that I could cut 3 at a time – this made the process go much, much quicker.
