I made a besom!

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 :blush:

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 :clap: :clap: Is it going to be hanging near the door?

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.
