Fun Halloween Craft

I thought it would be fun to start this month off with a "spooktacular" craft! Some of you may recognize this from last year, but I have a lot of new readers who probably haven't seen it...so I decided to repost it.

I started off with a cheap dollar store broom, lots and lots of ribbon and trim, and my trusty go-to-gal...my hot glue gun.


I wrapped the handle first. I used a bit of hot glue at the top, some in the middle, and a bit at the bottom to keep all those layers from slipping. Then starting at the bottom of the handle I added big loops of ribbon and strips of ribbon all around the perimeter. I just kept adding layers and layers of it till I got the look I was going for. Lastly, I topped it off with some pom pom fringe. You could pretty much use anything you have on hand for this project....just have fun with it!


So...what do you think of my wicked cute tricked out broom? This became one of my very favorite halloween decorations last year. I am in the process of pulling out all the bins and getting it all put up. That's one of my goals for this weekend. Hopefully, by Sunday night I will have it done and ready to show. I can't wait to share it with you!
