How to Make It

  1. Paint the wooden dowel with lavender acrylic paint. Let dry.
  2. Sand with fine-grit sandpaper for a worn look.
  3. For each broom, choose the brush material you want. Lay the material across one length of interfacing fabric so that about the top 2 inches of brush material extend beyond the fabric; glue in place. Let dry.
  4. Wrap one end of the gathered brush material around one end of the broom handle, gluing it in place. Let dry.
  5. Wrap raffia or twine several times around the top of each broom brush and glue in place.
