Need to make a DIY witch broom for your Halloween decorations? This frugal craft will set your decor apart from any store-bought ones.

This year I chose a witchy Halloween theme for my front porch. I didn’t want to go over the top but I wanted a couple of statement pieces.

I made a sign to hang on my porch that says “OLD SALEM BROOM CO. handcrafted & enchanted since 1692”. It just needed a cute handmade broom to attach to the front of it.

Materials

Instructions

  • GATHER SUPPLIES-
  • CUT TWIGS TO DESIRED LENGTH- Using cutters trim twigs to desired length. This will vary from broom to broom depending on how long you want your broom end to be. I just eyeballed mine but they were approx. 8" in length.
  • ADD TWIGS TO STICK BROOM HANDLE- First hot glue twigs to the end of the stick broom handle. Then add more on and tie them securely in groups to the end of the broom. Hot glue twigs in place where areas are bare.
  • WRAP WITH TWINE- When you are satisfied with the amount of twigs you have on the end of your broom wrap the top of the twigs, where they are connected to the broom handle, with twine/jute.

3. ADD TWIGS TO STICK BROOM HANDLE

I found it was easy to hot glue some of the twigs to the base of the broom first.

Once there was a good base on the end of the stick broom handle I started gathering several sticks at once then tied them on with a piece of twine.
