As we have been looking around costume stores this October for Witch brooms. After searching just about every costume shop in the area, it seemed like the stores didn’t have what we were looking for or they were ridiculous expensive for cheap plastic. Since we needed a larger number of brooms, we decided to go ahead and make them ourselves.
These brooms turned out darling and they were incredibly easy to make. The best part? They cost a fraction of other brooms we saw while we were searching and they were way cuter! Perfect for a little witch costume, Halloween decoration or maybe a game of Quidditch?
- a 36 inch long wooden dowel
- 2 yards of black tulle (I found this project easier with tulle by the yard rather than on a spool)
- black ribbon
- brown spray paint
- hot glue
Hot glue the end of the ribbon to one end of the dowel. Wrap the ribbon around the dowel, adding a dab of hot glue to make it secure every few wraps of the ribbon.
What would your use your Witch Broom for?
