Things are getting witchy around here! Can you believe we are less than a month away from Halloween!?!? CRAZY! The other day I got the idea for a fun and easy DIY project with the girls. They each got to make a witch broom!
It was such a fun and quick DIY project. They had so much fun getting to make their witch broom in their favorite color.
We have been spending our crafting time taking on holiday-themed activities and getting really into the Halloween Spirit. What I loved most about this project was that they were able to do the majority of it on their own.
Of course, I stepped in when needed and when the scissors or glue gun were involved. Overall, it was a super quick craft and they now have a fun witch broom they can use as decorations or to play with!
You can choose to make this as inexpensive as you want. Maybe you want to add some glitter or a fancy ribbon. Or maybe you want to add stickers to it, whatever you see fit. That’s the beauty of this project- letting the person make it THEIR OWN.

Witch Broom Supplies
- Dowel: I used a 7/8 inch dowel for the broomstick from Michaels
- Raffia: I purchased the 5oz bag and was left with more than half after making two brooms. I recommend if you need 1 or 2 brooms to purchase the 2oz bag for 3-5 brooms I recommend the 5oz bag
- Hot Glue Gun
- The first step was the painting of the broomstick. I laid out a bit of paint and a sponge brush for the girls to do this part on their own. You can add as many coats as you want and let dry in between. We did two coats to completely cover the broomstick.
- Next, grab the amount of raffia you want to use and form a bundle tied with a piece of string. Cut to the desired length.
- Once your broomstick is dry insert the stick into the center of the raffia bundle and tighten the string.
- Add glue to help stick some of the raffia. Tighten the string again.
- Brush through the raffia to bring out any loose pieces or uneven pieces.
- Cut to desired shape and length.
