How to make a broom

I was working on a Halloween Photo Tray in the studio this week and I wanted to use a miniature broom in one of the windows.  One problem, no broom.

In walks helpful hubby as I'm staring into space trying to figure out how I'm going to create a broom.  Seeing the blank look on my face, (after 42 years of marriage, he knows the look) he asks what I need. I explain, he leaves the room.  Short time later he's back in with several very short pieces of a tree limb and his dad's old shoe shine brush. I had some waxed thread left over from a book making class I took a loooooong time ago with Tim Holtz and that became the binding agent. Not bad.

I hope you get a chance to enjoy the season. It's Sunday, the kids and grandkids are coming for dinner and I'm going to go create a ghost with my grandson. Got the idea here.  Thanks Deb!
