Halloween Craft Idea: Witchy Broom Sticks Made From Pretzel Rods

Recently I was at the craft store and found this really fun Halloween craft magazine. It was $10.00!

That is steep for me.

And my 50% off coupon could not be applied to magazines.


So, I thumbed through the magazine and cataloged the projects in my mind.

Then, the next time I was in the store, I did the same thing again.

Thought about taking my scanner into the craft score, but I figured they would have frowned on that.

Plus, I could not find an electrical outlet.

Here is one of the fun ideas that was in this magazine. Wtichy Broom Sticks made of fruit rollups and pretzel rods.

You Will Need:

  • 1 box of 10 fruit roll ups
  • 10 pretzel rods
  • knife

Open and unroll your fruit rollup. Remove it from the cellophane.

Lay it flat on a plate and cut in into fourths.

(turn your flash off…)

Take one of the rollup strips and lay it horizontally.

Take a small knife (paring knife would be great) and cut slits, vertically,beginning about one-fourth of the way down from the top of the roll up all the way down to the bottom.

It will look like this once you pick it up.

Next, take your pretzel rod and roll the fruit rollup around it as the picture below illustrates.

And you’re broom sticks will look like this when they are done.

Super simple.

    They are so cute! Next time you go to the store you should take photos of the pages with your phone. That might be a little less inconspicuous that the scanner idea! ; ) Thanks so much for linking up with Fun for Kids Friday!
