  1. To Make the Broom:
  2. Fill tubes with candy. Seal shut.
  3. Measure the length and width of your chosen tube. Cut wood patterned decorative paper to wrap the tube. Attach to tube with double-sided tape.
  4. Measure raffia in approximately 4 5 inch lengths. Using hot glue, stick raffia around the bottom of the tube (about 1 inch from bottom). When fully wrapped, tie with another piece of raffia.
  5. Cut a decorative piece of paper and layer it on top of the first. Secure together with double-sided tape. Punch hole in top and tie onto tube with raffia.
  6. Cut out another decorative piece to layer (we used a bat). Using a double sided adhesive square, add to tag to give a 3-D effect.
  7. To Make the Rosette:
  8. Fill tube of your choice with candy.
  9. Adhere decorative paper to the bottom of the tube with double-sided tape.
  10. Cut 2 - 1 inch strips of orange paper.
  11. Place paper on scoring board and score at inch intervals.
  12. Stick both pieces of paper together using double-sided tape.
  13. Fold in an accordion style. Attach both ends together with double-sided tape.
  14. Press circle down with your hand to create a rosette.
  15. Drop hot glue into the center of the rosette and hold in place until the glue cools and is set.
  16. Turn rosette over and hot glue the other side.
  17. Cut out an embellishment to cover the center glue spot. Hot glue embellishment in place.
  18. Cut out a tiny embellishment (we used a spider) and using a foam square, stick on top of previous paper. This will give it a 3-D effect.
  19. Hot glue a folded piece of sheer ribbon to the back of the rosette. Add small strips of Washi tape for color if desired.
  20. Hot glue rosette to the front of the tube.
  21. To Make the Pumpkin Tube:
  22. Fill tube of your choice with candy.
  23. Seal top of tube with washi tape.
  24. Add a matching piece of washi tape to the bottom of the tube leaving a inch space.
  25. Cut out a decorative piece of paper and wrap it around the middle section of the tube with a border facing down. Secure with double-sided tape.
  26. Flip that piece of paper around and, leaving a 1 inch space, glue on the same style of paper with the border facing up. Secure with double-sided tape.
  27. Cut out a pumpkin shape from a decorative piece of paper. Glue a stem on top. Using double sided tape, stick it to the center space between the two border papers.
  28. Cut out another decorative design from paper (we used a spider cut in a flower shape). You can use a punch if you like.
  29. Cut tiny slits from the edge of your shape almost to the center. Then carefully curl these edges in until it makes a "flower like" shape (ours has a spider in the middle).
