Learn how to make cute non-candy halloween treats! Decorate pencils to look like a witch’s broom then add my printable Halloween pencil tags!
Hello Crafty Friends! Ready to make something super cute for Halloween? These witch broom pencils are a fun non-candy treat for Halloween! With so much candy, sometimes it’s nice to get something a little different!
These pencil gifts are perfect for the classroom, parties, and trick-or-treating! They also make fun gifts for the Teal Pumpkin Project. Each year for our trick-or-treaters we put out a bowl of candy along with a bowl of non-candy treats. This helps all kids have fun trick-or-treating by providing non-candy treats for children living with food allergies.
You’ll only need a few things to make these witch brooms including pencils, paper and the free printable pencil tags. The tags all come with a fun Halloween joke on them that is witch or broomstick themed. You can use Halloween pencils like I did, or use plain pencils to look even more like broomsticks.
These cute broomsticks are fun to make and a cute non-candy gift for kids! Below is the tutorial – I hope you have fun making them!
Pencil Witch Brooms – Non Candy Halloween Gifts
- Halloween Pencils – I used these Push Pencils from Target and was able to make the broomstick part on the pencil caps.
- Brown and orange cardstock
- White cardstock for the labels
- Double-sided tape – I used 1/4″ Scor-Tape
- Fringe scissors (optional but really fun to use!)
- Paper trimmer or scissors
- Craft knife and self-healing mat
- Printables! Instructions for how to download the pencil tags are at the end of this post
How to Make Witch Broomstick Pencils
Step One: Cut orange and brown cardstock. Start by cutting strips of orange paper about 1/4″ wide and rectangles of brown paper that measure 2″ x 5″.
Step Two: Fringe cut the brown paper. Use a scissors, or a fringe scissors if you have one, to cut one side of the brown pieces. The fringe scissors makes this go really quickly and perfectly spaces your fringe. I cut my fringe about 1.75″ in along one of the 5″ side of paper.
Step Three: Wrap the bottom of each pencil to create a broomstick. Start by wrapping double-sided tape around the pencil. Next wrap the brown fringed paper and then top with the thin piece of orange paper.
Adding the Halloween Pencil Tags
Step Four: Print and cut out the printable pencil tags. They each have a fun Halloween joke that is witch-themed!
Step Five: Use a craft knife to cut two slits in the paper tags and add them to each pencil. Lay the pencil tags on a self-healing cutting mat and cut two slits with a craft knife following the orange guide lines. Then simply slip them over the pencil.
The witches broomstick gifts are complete! I think these pencil broomsticks turned out SO cute and are a great non-candy Halloween gift!
I hope you enjoyed this fun craft! I love sharing cute Halloween crafts that are fun to make this time of year! I love making cute gifts, especially treat boxes like my Haunted House Treat Box and Halloween Cut-Out Boxes.
