Our family loves Harry Potter and recently we had a Harry Potter themed birthday party for the grandlittle girls. The hit of the party was the DIY Harry Potter Flying Broom! I made a few and the kids were "flying" all over the yard. I am excited to share how easy they are to make and share a lot of amazing Harry Potter crafts with a group of talented bloggers put together by Team Creative Crafts!
The Harry Potter themed party was held outdoors and the tent was transformed into a castle. The photo booth was filled with fun props and decor. Everyone was wearing HP glasses, adding a felt scarf and grabbing a broom!
Let's make a DIY Harry Potter Flying Broom!
Kunin® Premium Felt 9” x 18" Craft Cut – Walnut
A stick or dowel-approximately 3'
Ruler and Scissors
Measure and cut 1/2" strips lengthwise leaving 4" uncut along top edge.
Place felt with uncut top end around stick. If you line up cut ends with stick bottom, the broom will stand nicely. Glue edge in place. Continue rolling and glue end. Glue a couple of the cut strips to stick.
Tie twine tightly around stick approximately 1"- 2" from felt edge. Wind twine until you sre happy with the look and glue.
These DIY Harry Potter Flying Brooms are so fast and easy. Kunin Felt Brand Premium is super sturdy and weather resistant so it will hold up to a lot of flying. The grandlittle girls loved them!
Using sticks gathered along the river with interesting crooks and smooth finish made the brooms even more authentic.
