How to Make a DIY Witch’s Broom
Want a witch’s broom? Get a cool stick handle from nature, a broom with a bristle bottom and some twine or some kind of string. Disassemble the broom bristles, wrap them around the new stick handle and bind it with the twine. Should only cost you $5-10, or nothing if you have all these items at home already.
Keep your new witches broom safe during the off-season to continue using it for years to come. This project is a great way to stick to your get out of debt plan while still being able to have some Halloween fun.
Harvest Themed DIY Halloween Decorations
Use the power of plants to do the hard work for you! Harvest themed DIY Halloween decorations can be a nice arrangement of pumpkins, gourds, and mums. Maybe you could even throw in a little bale of hay without creating more personal credit card debt.
To keep costs low, look for sales on these particular items at grocery stores, farm stands and wherever else they are sold in your area. You may only be able to buy two or three of these items which are fine if you put them near the front door in a simple set-up.
