The last couple of days have been crazy. We just got back from our trip, and moved right into Halloween. I wanted to send the boys with a treat for their teachers, and of course I waited until last minute. We, ok....I guess I should say I, made these paper bag brooms. I put them together this morning right before they had to leave, filled them with treats and called it good.
To make them: You will need 2 brown paper lunch bags. 1 Stick from the yard. Twin or ribbon. Scissors. Candy or filling of sorts.
STEP 1: Unfold one bag, and push the base of it out while folding in the left and right sides.
STEP 2: Using your scissors, cut the bag into thin strips, stopping just short of the base.
STEP 3: Take your second bag, and cut thin strips into only the top inch or two.
STEP 4: Open both bags, and place the second bag inside the base of the shredded bag. Fill it with candy.
STEP 5: Insert your stick into the bag and bring all of the shredded pieces of the bag up and fasten them with twine. Add tag.
A pretzle rod would make for a cute broom handle.
