So I don't know about you guys, but I've never been happy with the flimsy, tiny, over-priced brooms sold retail. They just don't cut it for me. So I decided to make my own.

They're based off the witches' brooms from everyone's favorite Halloween flick, Hocus Pocus:

I took lots of artistic liberties, mainly for convenience, but I used several materials for the builds. The sticks I found walking home from school, I brought a saw and hacked them to right size and carted them home. I'm always on the lookout for Halloween prop supplies :rolleyes:

I used spray adhesive, which was a gift from the heavens because it kept all those bristles from going everywhere. Gray spray paint to cover the string used on Sarah's broom, and hot glue to attach the bristles to the sticks themselves.

And here are pictures of the brooms. They're massive, roughly six feet tall.
(with a coke zero bottle, for scale :cool:)

I hope to make Mary's sometime soon, and a custom one for myself. Comments and questions are always welcome! Hope you guys enjoyed!
