I had seen Mary Poppins and Burt costumes but didn't know where to get or how to make a chimney sweep!
I knew it was obviously possible to either make or buy one.
I searched online and found a site where a lady explained how she made one so now I want to show you how I made mine!
So much easier than I would have thought.
I started with a broom and styrofoam that I bought from the Dollar Tree.
I took the broom apart and hot glued the styrofoam to the end of the broom that didn't have the handle.
I then cut the bristles off.
I took it all out side to spray paint the broom and stryofoam black.
After they were painted I began to stick the bristles into the stryofoam.
After I finished the bristles, I spray painted them black as well.
I let is sit outside while we got dressed in our costumes.
Here is the finished product!
He looked so handsome.
If we were back in the day, I would still be head over heels for this chimney sweep.
There you have it, your very own chimney sweep!
