Easy to Conjure: DIY Witch Broom for Halloween


Annual Witch Rides Come One Come All October 31st | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #DIY #halloween

Happy Wednesday!

The Annual Witch Rides are just 23 days away. . .

Time to dust off your broom, polish your shoes and buy a new hat!

If you’re in need of a new broom for the Witching Hour,

here’s one that’s easy to conjure!

I picked a crooked limb for my broom from a pile of downed limbs

and branches and gave it a coat of black craft paint.

Next I gathered a partial roll of black mesh left over from ‘Brella, the Floating Witch,

and some back Halloween picks, along with a black cable tie.

I gathered the mesh around the limb and zipped it up with the cable tie,

tucking the picks underneath the tie to hold them in place,

and then cutting off the excess.

I tied a little more mesh to make a knot to conceal the cable tie.

Since every good witch loves holiday sparkle, I attached

some orange and black Halloween tinsel garland leftover

from my Halloween Treat Cones.

A sparkly spider pick was added as the final touch, glued under the knot.

This DIY broom assembly took less than 30 minutes,

making me happier than a witch in a broom factory!

    Mary, this is such a fun and creative project. Using a downed limb and leftovers from other projects made this an inexpensive one. I should dust off my crafty self and get busy. Happy Wednesday!

    I love your broom, so cool so easy. I found your site over a year ago and was saving all kinds of great ideas of yours for our first annual Halloween Costume Bash, but alas, due to covid all get togethers in our neighborhood have been cancelled. So, hopefully next year but meanwhile I got some things from Grandin Road (which you suggested long ago) and am plotting recipes for next year. Thank you for all of yur fantastic inspiration!

    You do love this season! Girl I got a slew of charred bloom handles to fly you to the moon, no paint needed! I love fall too, hutch is done and I have been playing with pumpkins like dolls daily, yesterday I was so sore I could barely move, I can garden all day, but twisting, turning, reaching, hauling pumpkins has worn me to a nub, think it is so funny this little hutch can wipe me out, but I can hold my own with acreage! you must have the witchiest house on the water, everyone must love driving by counting how many witches they can spot high and low!

    Mary~so crafty you are ! I love the broom, and I think I may have everything I need in my craft supplies. All I need to do is find a crooked branch which is easy to do as I live on the top of a mountain in Northwest CT

    Thanks for all your colors and creativity

    Happy Halloween

    Hugs, Dorinda
