Tomorrow I will be revealing am most witchy Halloween mantel, but before I do I wanted to show you the star of the show and how I made it. I want to show you how easy it is to make a handmade witches broom. Let’s learn how to make a witches broom.
This morning while was out feeding my goats, I was looking over all the weeds I have in my backyard I knew that there was something I could use them for. I am often overwhelmed by all the stuff that I have to do in my yard. But this was one of those moments I was relieved I still had some dead tall grass at the back of our lot. With so much going on, I was busy thinking about how I was going to decorate my Halloween mantel and I realized I can make a witches broom out of all these weeds!
So I grabbed my tree trimmers and I went to work. I cut down tall grass, found a limb from some tree trimming we did, and grabbed some other random dried weeds. My goats continued to bellow in the background while I was making quick work of all the cutting and trimming. I think the goats thought it was for them…not this time guys!
What I used to make a witches broom:
- tree limb, you can use a bamboo stick, or a dowel with a wider circumference
- twine or rope
- tall cut grass, dead weeds, store bought dried grass
This DIY witches broom is really easy to make, In fact I made a quick video for you to watch:
It really is quite easy to make, if you watch the video above you can see the full tutorial and process! This cost me no money at all, and only took me about 15 minutes to make. I really think I should make more of them!
