I found another lovely stick in the woods a few weeks ago and I’ve been debating what to do with it since I brought it home.
It dawned on me last week that I’ve not yet got a besom other than a mini one on my altar.
I had look at some guidance online for making one and ordered some birch branches from Etsy which arrived a few days ago.
Today was a lovely day so I sat outside and removed the bark from my stick with a chisel, then sanded it down and waxed with beeswax.
I soaked the branches in some hot water to make them more pliable and this is the result…
I might add some decoration, not sure yet, but I’m pretty happy with it
