This costume is very simple and inexpensive to make. The broom was crafted from a wood dowel and pipe cleaners and took less than an hour to make. For the outfit, we just used clothes we already had on hand. Then just added a little dirt on his face, (which most kids don’t mind) and that's it.
Place two black pipe cleaners in an X shape on one end of the wooden dowel. Repeat by layering two more in the other direction to make an X the other way. Simply repeat the process until you have used as many pipe cleaners as to make your broom look full and mimic the effect of a chimney sweep’s broom.
