Today’s DIY Ornament inspiration: The Three Broomsticks Tavern Sign!
Is this really the third Harry Potter related ornament I’m posting in a row? Yes, yes it absolutely is. Now, this isn’t what the actual sign looks like, but I rather like my interpretation.
First, just went out into my yard and found a stick I liked. I snapped my sticks to the length I thought would work for this ornament and arranged them on the wood round.
This helped me identify how much room I had for the lettering.
Paint the Lettering
I first used a colored pencil to decide where my lettering would go.
Then, I painted over it with brown craft paint and a fine point paint brush.
Make the Brooms
While the painted lettering dried, I made the tiny broomsticks. Using my hot glue gun, I attached pine needles (again, collected from my backyard) to one end of each stick.
Next, I wrapped twine around the pine needles where they join the broomstick, securing it with hot glue.
Finally, I used scissors to trim the pine needles to an appropriate length.
Assemble the Sign
I used my hot glue gun to secure the brooms to the wood disc.
Add a Twine Loop for Hanging
The wood disc I used had a pre-drilled hole in the top. I threaded a lenth of twine through it and tied a knot so I could hang it.
Add to Your Tree
I simply slid the twine loop onto a tree branch.
