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
@IrisW beautiful! You did a great job
Very nice, it can be used on a ritual.
I love your besom. It looks amazing
WOW. I wouldn’t add a thing if it were me, that’s the perfect witch’s broom! You did a great job on it!
I love it the way it is! Great job!
Oh my goodness! It’s perfect! I love it so much. You did a beautiful job!
Ooh girl I see some talent in you!!!
Congratulations on your besom! There’s a saying that goes: “a new broom sweeps clean”
Beautiful work and it adds so much meaning that you crafted it yourself Is it going to be hanging near the door?
It turned out lovely, @IrisW! May it invite in good luck and help to sweep out any negativity- congrats on your new besom!
Yes it’s the hallway near the front door.
I’ve had a clean with the hoover this morning so I’ll consecrate it later and having a ritual cleaning of my space.
Wow! That is awesome. So much love and energy has gone into this. Well done!
