Learn how to make a witches broom using items from the Dollar Tree and your own yard! It’s so simple to make this sparkly DIY witch broom that you’ll only be sorry you didn’t make one sooner!
This year for Halloween, I’m going to be a (not-so-basic) witch! Personally, I don’t think dressing up as a witch for Halloween ever goes out of style and I’m really excited to put my own personal spin on it this year. The Circus says she’s going to be my black cat, but then some days, she says she’ll be a witch with me and then some days, she’s just going to be a dog. So who knows what she will actually end up being?
Every witch of course, needs a broom. If you ask me or the Circus, we’ll tell you that we prefer brooms of the glittery and sparkly variety.
And glittery brooms, we have! I made these using supplies from my own backyard and The Dollar Tree. And you know what – I think these actually look better than a store bought glittery broom I bought a couple years back! Grunt agrees, so I’ll just go ahead and say it’s fact. 😉
Here’s how you can whip up your own glittery, sparkly DIY witch broom this Halloween!
How to Make a Witches Broom

Supplies & Tools Needed Per Broom:
- 1 tree branch from your yard roughly four feet long and about 1 inch in diameter
- Black Spray Paint
- 5-7 Glittery Branches in the color of your choice
- Jute Twine
- Hot Glue Gun
Remove all the smaller twigs and leaves from your large tree branch. Cut to size if needed. Spray paint the tree branch black.
After the branch has dried, run a bead of hot glue on one glittery branch stem and glue it onto your tree branch near the bottom.
Place the glittery branch so that where it breaks off into smaller branches and fans out is right near where the real tree branch ends. Hold the glittery branch in place until the glue dries.
Wrap twine tightly around where the two branches are glued together a few times.
Repeat steps 2-3 until you have covered your tree branch end with enough glittery branches for your liking. I used about 5-7 glittery branches per actual tree branch.
Once you have put all the glittery branches you want on your tree branch, wrap more twine around where the tree branch and glittery branches meet. Cover any spots of glitter or black that may be coming through where the glittery branches are glued.
Cut the twine when you are finishing wrapping and hot glue the end tightly in place.
Fair warning – these do shed glitter, especially as you are putting them together. A little glitter never hurt anyone though. 😉
The Circus has already staked claim on the pinky-purple one if she’s a witch, so I’ll be flying on the black or orange one. 😉

Jenna! These are perfect! I was considering dressing up this year and figured a witch would be easy enough. A witch broom wasn’t on my radar for the costume, but, after seeing these I’m sold! Gonna make a run to the dollar store ASAP before all the decor is gone! Thanks Jenna for all your “freaky FUN” ideas!
Girl, you can’t be a witch without a broom!!! Haha!
Oooooh I don’t know about THAT!! Haha! But it sure will be more fun!
My favorite holiday is upon us. A holiday with NO cooking, no buying gifts, etc…. Just answering the door to the cutest kids ever and giving them lots of candy, then sending them home! How can that not be your favorite??? And those brooms are wonderful!! Happy Halloween, y’all !!!
Preach, Pam!! It’s my favorite too!!

I thought those were cute and now I can make mind. I love making wreaths and we have a storage area now stairs. Last year I was like I could hang them all on the walls. Now I will hang my brooms there also.
Yep! I bet you could also use those glittery stems to make a really pretty wreath too, Stephanie!
OMG, sooo cute! I’m with you on the no witch emoji! What’s up with that? So glad They finally got a mermaid this year??♀️
Thanks, Susan! Right?! How can there not be a witch emoji?!

Ohhh! I love these. We are having a witch dinner for my 9 year old daughter and her friends next week. I love the idea of letting them each make their own broom!!! Fingers crossed the dollar store still carries these branches 🤞
