Build Your Own: Long-Handle Brooms
Customize your own hand-held or full-size unique broom design, choosing the color of broomcorn and cording, and whether you’d like to create an optional woven cap or handle for the broom. Choose between natural, black, or rainbow broomcorn* for the bristle (rainbow includes a mix of red, dark green, royal blue, purple, and natural (0.5 pounds each), then pick between four cording bundle colorways. The black twine is slightly tarred and has a tackier surface than nylon, making it a great choice for securing the inner bristle on a long-handle broom.
If you want to create a full-size (long-handle) broom, add the broom handle to your order (you do not need to purchase a handle if you are making a hand-held broom). If you’d like to create a decorative woven handle (for hand-held broom designs) or woven Sweeper cap (for long-handle designs), make sure to add the broomcorn stalks.
We’re excited to see your broom creations! In her broom-making workshops, Alyssa encourages you to really get creative. “Change up your colors, change up your shapes, experiment with different methods, and really make this craft your own,” she shares.
Note: This listing is intended to accompany Alyssa Blackwell’s Broom Making Workshops: Naked Turkey Wing, Woven Whisk, and Long-Handled Brooms. Purchasing this add-on listing by itself will not allow access to Alyssa’s digital class or include all the materials in the original workshop.
*Due to shipping restrictions of this type of natural material, we are unable to ship broomcorn to Australia and New Zealand at this time.
