I love celebrating anything, so of course I’m already counting down to the next holiday! 20 days until Halloween! But I didn’t have to tell you that; the stores have had Fall products on their shelves since July 4th!

Loving the seasons and the holidays that come with them, the crafting industry is the perfect fit for me! At Sizzix we start creating projects for the Fall around Springtime…and I LOVE Fall and all things that come with it (even with the 90+ degrees here in California right now!). I love Fall’s crisp air, the colors orange and brown, food in the oven and soups on the stove!Cute and Crafty candy idea for Halloween. Dress up your Red Vines into Sweet Witch's Brooms!

Since our 3 daughters are in their 20s, there are no more costume ideas to come up with and no sneaking candy from their stash! What I do get to do, is create fun little treats with sweets for my co-workers at Sizzix! We sure have a great time in the Art Room and Creative Concepts Department…one big happy family, being crafty and sharing treats every chance we get!Cute and Crafty candy idea for Halloween.

Being surrounded by so many crafty people, I’m always trying to come up with something clever for the holidays. Having created several kits recently for some Sizzix jewelry classes, I’ve been using my friend Lindsey Serata’s new tassel designs; boy is it ever fun! She actually created them for the oh-so trendy tassel accessories you’ve been seeing everywhere…jewelry, purses, keychains, etc. But I was thinking “Hmm…other than that cute tassel cut from paper, fabric or leather, what else can I use it for?”Cute and Crafty candy idea for Halloween.

Nyah Ahh Ahh! (that’s supposed to be the sound a witch makes!) I know! A witch’s broom! Instead of a tassel, I’ll make a witch’s broom for all of my friends…not life size of course! Licorice as the broomstick and the broom’s bristles will be the tassel! Thanks Lindsey! Who’d a thought?!Cute and Crafty candy idea for Halloween. Dress up your Red Vines into Sweet Witch's Brooms!

With the Sizzix Big Shot machine, Fall colored papers and Lindsey’s die, you will love the cuteness of these Sweet Witch’s Brooms!

Make a few for your family, friends, grand kids, neighbors, co-workers, roommates, etc. Feeling extra crafty? Hand them out to the little goblins ringing the doorbell in 17 days!

Author Debbie

Ingredients

  • 6 pieces Fall color papers preferably cardstock cut to 3" x 7"
  • 6 pieces of the same papers cut to 1/2" x 2"
  • Tape or tape runner I use Glue Glider by RS Industries
  • Twine embroidery floss, or yarn
  • Red Vine Twists Original Red or Black Licorice
  • Sizzix Movers & Shapers Magnetic Die ~ Tassel* *See Gr8 Notes below.
  • Sizzix Big Shot Machine

Instructions

  1. Run larger pieces of paper though the Big shot machine with the tassle die.
  2. Lay the flat "tassle" on a workplace.
  3. Roll each "tassle" around the end of 1 licorice piece and adhere with tape.
  4. Fluff up the "bristles" with your fingers.
  5. Taking the smaller piece of paper, wrap it around the top of the "bristles." Adhere with tape.
  6. Tie piece of twine around the "band" into a knot or bow.
  7. Wrap brooms individually in cello or lay flat on a platter.

Recipe Notes

*To use the Movers and Shapers dies, you need to use the Movers and Shapers Shuttle or Movers and Shapers base Tray.

Gr8 Tip:

Alternatively if you don't have the Big Shot die cutting machine, with scissors, you can manually cut "fringe" from the 3" x 7" papers.
