Midsummer Door Ornaments

Items Needed:
· Small broom, about 1′ by 8″
· Plastic seasonal flowers ~ {Roses, Wildflowers}
· 3 different colours of ribbon, about 12″-16″ long
· Some thin wire ~ {strip garbage bag twist-ties of their paper coats}
· Ornament oriented to the sabbat
· Wire Cutters
· Scissors

Directions: (Note, if doing this project with children, please watch the scissors and wire cutters) Take the wire cutters and cut the flower stems to a height that is workable. With the wire, begin tying into them the seasonal flowers and the berries at the base of the broom nearest where the bristles begin. Make sure the leaves of the flowers lie flat against the bristles. This will be a great background for the colour of the flowers to contrast against. Take the berries and the fruit and lie them between the flowers and then tie them of with the wire. As soon as all of that is in, pick out your favourite Midsummer ornament.

Take the ribbon and tie in a bow or a knot, either will do, around the wire. Let some of the extra drape around and under the broom. When you want to hang this, simply take a bit of wire and string it through the top of the broom handle and nail it to the door, hang it in a window or wherever you prefer. To hang it with the bristles pointing upwards, weave the wire up through the bristles and then twist it a few times for some extra strength.
