How To Make A Harry Potter Broomstick (or Witch’s Broom)

If you love Hogwarts and all things Harry Potter... make our easy broomsticks. Come over for instructions and how to video.

We are big Harry Potter fans here at Family Makes, so following our recent trip to Alnwick Castle and Alnwick Museum (Bailiffgate), we were inspired by some brooms we found in the shop, which made us decide to create some awesome Harry Potter style broomsticks. If you aren’t a fan of Harry Potter then this broom craft could also be an activity for Room On The Broom or The Worst Witch, and is probably great just as a broom for Halloween.

To make this wonderful broom you will need:

  • large stick (for handle/seat)
  • smaller sticks (for the head of the broom)
  • string (to tie the broom head together)
  • scissors (to cut the string)
  • glue (to hold the sticks in place)

Going out to find the sticks is a big part of the fun for this craft!

Step 1:

Arrange the littler sticks around the larger stick until it looks like the end of a normal broom.

Step 2:

Firmly wrap the string right around the smaller sticks then tie a knot to keep to keep them in place.

Step 3:

Put some glue on the tied sticks and leave to dry, then the magic is ready to happen!

      Thank you, hope it comes in handy. We’ll have to re-share it around Halloween time!

  7. What a fab idea and a craft that the kids can join in with too! Be great for Halloween or just flying round the house! #MakeItLinky

  8. My little girls are yet to learn all about witches and Harry Potter so a make to pin for later. #MakeItLinky

  9. Fantastic! My son would absolutely love this! My girls are both into Harry Potter a lot now too, but their little brother is the one who wants to BE Harry Potter. He’s actually already written his letter to Santa, and he’s only asking for 2 things: A real magic wand, and an invisibility cloak. There is no convincing him that Santa can’t bring these things. He is actually quite insistent that both items are available for sale in England (we are American), so maybe you could pick one up for me? You’d really be helping Santa out. 😉 #thelistlinky

    1. Oh Nicole, that’s a tricky one! If you can get them anywhere it will be at Alnwick Castle for sure. Hugo got a fabulous wand there recently! Then you can tell your son that you have a friend in England who is going to find out for you, before Santa goes all that way for nothing… you can even show him our Alnwick posts as proof!

  10. This looks fantastic! We’ll definitely have to try this! We are reading ‘Room On The Broom’ at the moment actually, so this could be perfect! Thank you for linking up to #MakeItLinky
