Witches Brooms

A Witch comes to our house each year on the 30th of September to bring us Halloween Cheer, She swoops in a flash and leaves floating Hats that sparkle and shine, ITS HALLOWEEN TIME! This year she was feeling extra "witchy" and left us with some spooky brooms too.


Thanks to a good monsoon storm we had branches that broke off some trees in the neighborhood (pretty sure that landscaping crew thought I was crazy wanting the big branch) I used a small saw and cut "witch broom" size pieces and twigs. I let them bake in the AZ sun to dry out and to help the leaves fall off. Next  take some wire and tie your twigs to your broom stick (it would be easier with some help but I managed) Next  I bought the cheapest Black Spray Paint (I think it was primer) and paint them. I did a top coat of some black Glitter.



All I need is my "BROOM PARKING" sign!



The Hats are hung and the brooms taking flight its time to decorate for Halloween TONIGHT!

So great! Love that you painted them and mounted on the wall! Looks like you've changed your house so much. Somehow we need to see each other more!
