If the Broom Fits

Welcome back to another installment of EEK WEEKS!  I cannot believe this is number six, and we only have two more fall/Halloween projects to go.


This week's project was inspired from a pillow I bought a few years ago that says, "If the broom fits, ride it."  I was feeling a little witchy, and needed some fun color to go with my stylish Halloween boxes so I decided a witch's broom would be the perfect addition to my Halloween decor.

I started with a broom I found at Michael's and added glittered lime green and purple branches, leaves, and rhinestones to the straw end of the broom.  I wrapped stripy ribbon around the handle and hot glued a bow with some dangley witchy accouterments (eyes, skeleton hand, and tombstones) to the middle of the broom.



I hung the broom parallel to the staircase and accessorized with all things witchy...Halloween boxes, a black cat, a hand-drawn spider web, and a creepy little, old witch.

I was inspired by Jessica over at Craftily Ever After to create my own Halloween version of "Keep Calm and Carry On," so I made "If the broom fits, ride it."  It's the perfect finishing touch to this vignette. 


I think this turned out so cute!  I was kind of stuck in a Halloween decorating rut and having this blog and doing EEK WEEKS has really forced me to think outside the box.  I heart blogland! :)

Are you feeling a little witchy?  Would you like the "If the broom fits" printable?  Let me know, I'm happy to share! :)

This past week Crafts & Sutch reached over 400 followers!  I'm over the moon, so be on the lookout for a giveaway soon as my thank you to you! :) 

I'll be linking up to these fantastically awesome parties

  26. That's an absolutely adorable vignette and I'd love it if you posted the printable! I pick up a cinnamon broom or two ever year (the grocery store here carries them for less than $5.00 and they make the house smell so good) - I really like the way you've decorated yours!
