These broom gnomes are a quick craft you can create any time of year. Today I created this Christmas in July craft in less than 10 minutes using only dollar store supplies.
One of the coolest finds at the Dollar Tree are the mini brooms, scented with either cinnamon or eucalyptus. These are easily turned into a gnome ornament or shelf sitter and can be dolled up with Buffalo check, ticking stripe, or any other fabric.
Cinnamon Broom Gnome Craft
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I’m working on a few Christmas in July crafts for the YouTube channel. Each year I like to swap the brights and beiges of summer for a few holiday DIYs. And honestly, I’m always trying to use up the insane amount of craft supplies I accumulate…
While at the dollar store today, tucked away on the very bottom of the candles section, I noticed small eucalyptus and cinnamon broom sticks. I only picked up one because I didn’t know if my idea would hold water, but I’ll be back for more.

Tips and Considerations for Scented Broom Crafts
- I turned this into an ornament because I was unsure what would happen over time if I placed this heavily oiled piece onto my furniture. My hands were noticeably covered.
- Because I loved the way this turned out and wanted to create something for fall, I picked up some unscented whisk brooms that I’m going to make. I’ll update you here.
- If you are sensitive to cinnamon, eucalyptus, or other oils, use something like these dried arrangements. They would be beautiful for fall.
- If you have fabric for a gnome hat, cut it pretty small for this project. The piece I used was only about 3-4 inches high. It allowed a very strong hold for the hanger.
- This easy DIY is fun because you do not have to create the gnome body is done for you, leaving you to decorate the hat and hanger!
- As you will see in the scented broom gnome video tutorial, I debated painting these white or silver for a holiday look. I’m not sure how well the paint will adhere (or if it would last), so if you have painted these, please let me know in the comments!
- If you need ideas, this would make an adorable witch gnome or other Halloween gnome, fall gnome (with a neutral colored hat), or even a broom closet gnome with a little mini broom of his own!
