Broom corn is the same stuff they make the classic “corn brooms” out of, but on these brooms, I’ve left the seeds on the stalks which is what gives them their beautiful color. You can find broom corn for sale in the autumn at the same time as regular cornstalks (If you’re a local, feel free to ask me about it. I usually have a milk can full of it for sale at the farm markets). Broom corn’s flexibility allows for mistakes, and because there are so many heads of broom corn on one swag, it doesn’t require each head to be perfect. Statice and straw flowers can easily be dried using the air-dry method.
