Harry Potter Broomstick Party Favors

Believe it or not, my son Little Crafter is getting ready to celebrate his 11th birthday on Sunday! He was just two years old when I started blogging…I’m really not sure how time has flown so fast. This year, he is obsessed with Harry Potter and wanted to have a Wizarding World themed birthday party. Here’s a quick look at what we created as favors for his guests.

These cute little paper bag broomsticks are not my original idea; they’re floating around all over Pinterest, but we put our own spin on them with the hand lettered tags and what’s inside. Take a look!

Brown Paper Bags


Pretzel Rods

Hemp Cord

Tag Punch {mine is Fiskars}

Marker/Pen (mine is a Tombow Fudenosuke)

Double Sided Antiqued Parchment Paper

Creating Harry Potter Broomstick Party Favors:

Step 1: Fold the bag so about 1/3 of it is sticking up. Cut along the fold to create thin strips.

You can leave as much or as little space between cut lines as you like.

Step 2: Trim the top 2″ of the  bag. Open the bag and fill it with your favors.

Little Crafter chose to use plastic Harry Potter glasses and HP house-themed pencils (both from the party section of Walmart). He also used his Rainbow Loom to create bracelets for each guest in the colors of their Hogwarts house.

Step 3: Place a pretzel rod in the bag and gather the top around the pretzel. Tie a piece of hemp cord tightly around it.


Step 4: Use the tag punch on the parchment paper or on another paper bag. Write each guest’s name on a tag and tie it onto a bag with the hemp cord. 

I used a Tombow Fudenosuke and hand lettered each name in Brush Script. If you’re new to hand lettering and would like to give it a try, check out my faux calligraphy post, my beginner brush script post, or one of my books!

I think they’re just the cutest! You could also substitute a dowel or a stick from outside in place of the pretzel rods. I like how each one looks slightly unique, just like a real broom would be.

What do you think? Is there a Harry Potter fan in your life who would enjoy one of these little treat bags? You don’t have to wait for a party to create one! Fill it with popcorn, another snack, or a small gift for an unexpected surprise. Be sure to check back for some of the other crafts and activities we’ll be doing at the Harry Potter party, and join us at the Amy Latta & Friends Facebook group for more inspiration! See you there.

Don’t forget; if you like it, put a Pin on it!
