The witching hour is said to be the time of night when supernatural beings — witches, ghosts and the like — are most active. I’m planning to celebrate the year’s most powerful witching hour — Halloween night — by setting the table with these diminutive brooms.
The best part? I can, ahem, conjure up these mini flying machines from things I already have on hand: raffia, twigs and brown paper bags. To make, just cut and affix raffia to the twigs, cut the paper name tags and write in your best spooky script (preferably in blood-red ink.) Get full instructions here >>
Use them with a fall-themed table setting, or play up the creepy factor with a witch-themed tablescape, complete with potion-ready apothecary jars and “poison” apples.
Send the brooms home with guests as a favor, or reuse the leftovers for a Hogwarts-themed bash.
