Hi y’all! It’s almost time for Halloween! So naturally it’s time for an adorable Halloween Broom DIY to sit on your porch or use next to your fireplace OR if your cars in the shop (hehe)!
Many years ago while Boo and I were vacationing in Tennessee, we went to this awesome little shop that had the cutest broom and to this day, it’s one of those big mistakes we make…I wished I had bought it. It was that cute y’all! Brooms have always fascinated me and I have a love for them too because my dads dad made brooms. Not really sure if it was for selling or just because he liked to make them–pretty sure because he sold them though. But one time when he was visiting and I was very little, I remember him showing us how he made them. I was hooked!
An obsession began and I’ve loved the ever since. So naturally who doesn’t want a cute one to decorate for the holidays? Several years ago, I was visiting my daughter and SIL when I noticed their curly willow tree in the front yard with awesome curly branches full of nobs and all. I asked my SIL if you wouldn’t mind cutting off a branch and he indulged me. Fast forward to today and I still have that same curly willow branch, unfortunately for the curly willow tree- it is not!
But over the years I haul out my broom to decorate in the Fall with, and originally the bristles were out of vine branches (sturdier) but this move kinda did ’em in! I gathered my little helpers and we not only revamped my broom but we made one for my grandson’s front porch.
He loved that he was able to collect the supplies (sticks) and pick out his own branch for his!
Lots of twigs and trimming to size and we had us a very easy gcc diy! (And isn’t my curly willow branch just perfect?)
HALLOWEEN BROOM DIY
- large branch
- twigs/rafia/ or vine twigs
- tie wraps (2-3 per broom) (more if yours is fuller) I*I used the 8″ ones
- yard clippers
- cute ribbon (optional)
Gather all your supplies. If using twigs, trim all of them the same length (you can judge how many you need based on your liking). The next step might require more than 2 hands but it can be done alone. Wrap your bristles around the branch and while holding them tight and snug, wrap the tie wraps and give them a great tug to tighten as far as they’ll go. Try to space them about 2-3 inches apart from the second tie wrap. (If yours will be fuller- you can group two tie wraps together to lengthen.). Use scissors or clippers to trim off access tie wrap.
Now you’re ready to wrap with twine or cute ribbon. You can even add glitter, spray paint it, or go crazy with some fun creativity!
Happy Fall y’all~
