How to Make a Witch’s Broom for Halloween

If you are thinking of going with a classic Halloween costume and zeroed in on witch, don’t forget witch accessories are just as important as the pointy hat! In this case, make a handmade witch’s broom to fly around on!

My brother-in-law made a broom years ago when my niece dressed up as a witch.

I thought I’d give it a try!

This is such an easy project and super cheap! Depending on their ages, you can have the kids gather sticks for the broom and/or have them help you put it together!

Step 1

Gather a big stick along with smaller sticks and twigs. Then, decide which end of the big stick you want covered for the broomstick bristles and which end you want to be exposed.

Step 2

Begin hot gluing the twigs to one end of the stick.

Step 3

When you have one layer complete, take the twine and wrap it around a couple of times, tying it tight. Add a little hot glue for additional strength.

It’s that simple and you can embellish it further if you want. Add a little spider or cobwebs. You can stain the stick if you want it to be a different color. You can add a little glitter if you want to glam it up!
