Rustic Fall Cinnamon Broom
A cinnamon broom gets a quick and easy update to a Rustic Fall Cinnamon Broom Decoration.
Do you know what those delicious smelling stick brooms in stores are?
Up until a few days ago, I had never heard of one but I have seen plenty around. I always thought they were just twig brooms that people used to decorate for Fall with. After looking around at Pinterest and google I realized that they are called cinnamon brooms because most of them are scented like–you guessed it–cinnamon.
I stumbled across a box of the brooms at Home Depot a few weeks ago. I, of course, snatched one, actually 3, up! Miss Emma and I gave all of them some beautification by adding some new Fall floral picks that I found at Michael’s for 60% off. Seriously this is the best money I’ve spent on a Fall Craft. I love the way they turned out and it looks great with the rest of my Fall decor.
HOW TO MAKE A RUSTIC FALL CINNAMON BROOM
Cinnamon Broom – This delightfully fragranced broom fills any space with the sweet aroma of warm cinnamon. Traditional uses for a cinnamon broom include hanging it above the doorframe of the main entrance to help ward off negative influences and intrusion of harmful intentions.
Zip Ties – These are used worldwide, in countless ways from bundling household wires, to use in construction and law enforcement. Zip ties are primarily made of plastic and I use them on everything!
Fall floral picks – I personally like to try to stick with festive seasonal shades of red, orange, yellow, peach, and white, as well as contrasting shades of pink.
Wired Ribbon – Wired ribbon allows for greater flexibility which leads to easier, more beautiful designs. Wired ribbon also helps everyday designs maintain their shape and beauty.
Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks – At room temperature, hot melt glue sticks are in solid form and as they are applied to the surface of a material they turn into molten form. … In fact, hot glue is as permanent as epoxy glue and it is suitable in applications where epoxy is not.
I carefully opened and gently fluffed the broom bristles to make it look fuller.
I arranged my Fall floral picks and secured them together by placing a zip-tie around the stems. Then I hot glued the florals into place on the broom.
Once the Fall floral picks were secured, I wrapped my ribbon around the stems starting at the top and working my way to the bottom. This part was a little time consuming, but really easy. Once I had the portion of the cinnamon broom and floral stem covered, I hot glued the ribbon in place.
For the finishing touch, I tied a simple bow in my wired ribbon. I chose harvest colored gingham fabrics ribbon because it went along with the tones in the Fall florals I used. I think it compliments it well!
