Challenge: Witch Brooms

Here is a cute crafting idea from Make and Take posted by Marie. Tiny brooms made of yarn and pipe cleaners. We made ours with our daughter, and it was a lot of fun. I am sure you can do ANY color for the broom part, the more colors the better I say lol.

Directions with our Photo steps:

Mini Witch brooms
Yarn Brown or Yellow
Pipe Wire Brown or Black

Measure out 20-30 pieces of yarn at 7 inches long. 

*note we measured our pipe cleaner pieces*

Fold the yarn pile in half using a pipe cleaner loop and twist together. 

Split the yarn the other way and loop the another pice of pipe cleaner. 

Twist pieces together to make the handle. 

Take a small pice of pipe cleaner and about 1/2 inch from the fold wrap around. 

Trim the bottom of the yarns to give it an even shape.

We can't wait to see what you do with this simple and fun craft!

  1. MM Willow, my name is Lady Willow Hawk, but everyone calls me Willow. What a great craft to do with kids. You can make the besoms bigger also and hang them on the front door. In the coven I belong to I always do crafts with kids to help them learn about all the Sabbats and esbats. Thank you.
