I really wanted a witch's broom for my Halloween decor but I wanted something really whimsy since I am not into the creepy. I found this broom at the dollar tree and thought that it would be perfect!
I spray painted the broom part black and then I wrapped the handle in masking tape.
My next step was to paper mache the handle. I wanted it to be bumpy and wavy to give it that whimsical look: (disclosure: do not stare directly at the ugly blue countertops! I repeat do not stare at the ugliness!)
Ok I forgot to take pictures of the next few steps but here is what I did: I painted the handle exactly how I wanted it. I did orange and purple stripes. Next I tied some raffia and ribbon to the base and added a little glue! Viola! I was done!
