Need A Lift! Hop On My Broom!

The title of the post makes me giggle. I can see myself floating around the Inn on a broom. It is that time of year at the Inn when I start feeling a little “punchy” and maybe even a touch of cranky. Long hours start to get to me. Fall is bittersweet for a few reasons.. business slows down – this is good for stamping and getting inky and having more time to be creative BUT, for the inn’s sake.. not quite as good for our checkbooks. In the innkeeping business it is feast or famine – make hay when the sun shines and make the best of it when it doesnt. That is why my rubbah addiction keeps me balanced and sane! LOL!

Here is today’s project:

Orangel Candy Stick Brooms

Orange Candy Stick Brooms

Supplies Used:

  • Orange candy sticks – I found a box of 25 at Party City
  • Witches Brew Designer Series Paper
  • Basic Black and Basic Gray Stripe Ribbon – Exclusive to the Halloween Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit
  • Sticky Strip

I cut 2 12 inch strips of designer paper. I cut them on one side as a fringe. I then applied the double stick tape on the side I didnt want to show. I rolled it around the candy stick and I did this twice (2 layers, one just about 1/4 to 1/2 inch above the other). I then flared the broom outward to give it some dimension. I tied the ribbon at the top of the 2nd layer. That’s it! You could fancy it up if you’d like. Just something quick and simple for a little “something something”. I hope you make some more with me! They are so darn cute!
