So, I decided to try to make one, too.
I gathered cuttings from the yard...
...and took everything to the deck. I always make a mess, and the deck is easy to clean.
The broom I had, is one of those you see this time of year in the floral section of the grocery store, but I found this one at Goodwill.
I used lace cap hydrangea, purple basil...
...variegated privet, rose hips...
...and a few sprigs of Indian Hawthorne.
I made two bunches, using rubber bands to tie each, then placed the ends together and wired them to the broom.
I hung it on the kitchen door, and added a few more sprigs to fill in.
It probably won't last a long time, since most of the cuttings won't dry in place, but I'm pleased with how it turned out.
I just hope there won't be any critters living in it, like in the front door wreath. The praying mantis lived there for a week and left, but now something else has moved in.
Next time, I'll tell you what's living there now.

Hope you're having great Fall weather.
