I have a confession to make.  I LOVE candy corn!  Not just any candy corn either.  There’s only one brand I like because it’s so good and creamy;  so I stalk my local discount store until it’s in stock then I try to think of crafty ways to use it so I can justify buying lots of it.  🙂

Now that my confession is out, I’ve got a really fast and easy Halloween (you can also use this idea for Thanksgiving with a change of tags and ribbon) project for you. 

These candy broom favors are so simple that the kids can help and each one only takes a few minutes.

I have a complete supply list for you at the end of this post and a printable step by step tutorial here so you can make your own. 

For each broom, you’ll need 2 small or medium Kraft paper bags.  Push out the bottom of each bag, making sure the sides are still folded to the inside.

Cut the bag into strips, stopping at the bottom crease.

Spread the cut bag out so that it lies flat.  Cut the top of the 2nd bag into small strips about 1-2” down from the top.

Fill about 1/3 full of candy (corn!)

Pull the sides up, insert a clean stick about 2” into the bag. (I cut mine 6” long.)  Tie with May Arts Black Burlap String.  I used some Hero Arts Soft Brown Shadow ink to sponge on some color but that’s totally optional.

You could stop there but not when we have gorgeous May Arts Ribbons to add sparkle, texture and fun.

I added even more sparkle to May Arts Sheer Spider Web ribbon by using a glue pen to trace the lines and adding glitter.  All embellishments were attached with hot glue.  To open the bags, just tear into the sides. 

These would make great teacher appreciation gifts as well as “You’ve been Booed” treats.
