Afternoon, friends, glad you called back for a flying visit today as we are talking brooms !!
Not the witchy variety though!
Yes as you can see I got me a whisk broom, something I've long wished for to add a touch more prim to my home.
Now to make it more prim: well I'd searched for ideas and have to give credit and thanks to Melissa of Cornbread and Beans Quilting blog for her tutorial and free printable label which I used!
Click HERE to go to her tutorials page and scroll through them. There are lots of great ideas!
But I didn't stop there! Oh no! Here's where the witch brooms come in! I found these in our Poundland store which is equivalent to a Dollar Tree store among the Halloween decorations and knew they'd make a great whisk broom too!
First thing was to take out the poles and unwrap and then I gave it a haircut just to trim to size and give it more of a used broom look.
Next I wrapped them both together with wire and then covered the handle in jute twine and made a hang loop.
Decided to hang it from my little shelf
And that spurred me on to finish the top of the shelf
Just without flash to give a warm glow .
You can see my post from yesterday how to make the little burlap bag.
The nights are really drawing in so it's nice to light a candle or two in the evenings.
Hope you are all enjoying your week!
