These 6 inch brooms can be made to match any decor, and made for your own use or as gifts, used as gift tie-ons, or sold at a craft fair. Although I haven't tried it yet, I'm thinking they might even be a cute addition to a summer wreath. My brooms were particularly cost effective to make as I purchased all of my materials at garage sales.
Crafting Time: 30 - 45 minutes
What You Need
- 6 inch straw broom
- scraps of ribbon or pre-made bows
- small silk flowers and bits of baby's breath
- craft glue or a hot glue gun
Cut off the flower heads and arrange them with baby's breath over the surface of the broom. When you find a pleasing arrangement, THEN glue them in place. Glue or tie-on ribbon bows.
Each broom already comes equipped with a loop at the top of the handle for hanging, so there's no need to add one.

This is great for hanging between your door and your storm door. It is flatter than most wreaths, etc. Cute, quick and simple to make. Start with a cinnamon broom
- cinnamon broom
- bows, holly, poinsettias
- black and white felt for eyes
- red plastic Christmas tree ball ornament
- hot glue gun and glue
If you have the long handled broom as in the picture at the bottom right, cut the handle off just below the binding. This is an easy task with the band saw. Separate the broom into two equal parts and tie with twine
Trace eye patterns below onto felt, cut out and hot glue in position. Hot glue the red ball in place. Hot glue your choice of embellishments to cover the twine. You could also add a little spray snow from a can on the tips of the reindeer "antlers" Add a ribbon to the back Just at the bottom of the separated "antlers" for a hanger.
