3CTC-Fall or Halloween Treat Holder

Make a treat holder for Fall or Halloween! What fun over at 3 Clovers Thursday Challenge this week! Should be some great treat holders for you all to peek at this week!

This was a project I meant to make last Halloween, but darned if I didn't run out of time. I did make these cute pumpkin bag treat holders though. They are both creations I found on Martha Stewart's site. You can read her directions on how to make these Witches Brooms HERE. I also found a great tutorial with pictures HERE. (sorry my pic does not show the whole "broomstick", but I had to crop so you didn't see the pile of paper plates on top of the microwave LOL)

I have a lot of random Halloween stamps, so this gives me a chance to use a lot of them. I don't get too fussy as the kids will just rip them open in two seconds anyway.

I knew I was going to make these this year, so my sweetie cut these branches for me in the spring, so I had them cut and ready to go!

Each bag takes the following supplies:

1. 2 paper sacks-I used sacks about 6 1/2 inches tall, small treat size. If you use too big of a sack...it will hold a load of candy. This bag holds about 8 minature type candy bars/bags. You will fill one bag and set it inside of a shredded bag.

2. Twine

2. Branch or a big pretzel rod works equally well. Should be about 12 inches long or so.

4. Lots of good treats!


This image was gifted to me. I believe it is a Darcie's stamp...so cute...wish I had more!
