Our filling of choice was a small rock and some balled up newspaper. These handy little brooms make adorable decorations.
If you’re a city dweller, or you’re not particularly a fan of walking through the woods in order to pick up sticks, you could use Pretzel Rods instead of Twigs.
I would recommend that you switch to the much smaller snack size paper bags if using pretzel rods to maintain correct proportions.
