Step 1: Supplies and Tools
Whisk broom - black bristles, again from the dollar store.
Craft needles - regular needles may be too thin, so get some heavier duty ones. My dollar store had these too!
Wooden dowel - size that fits comfortably in your hand. You may also use the handle of a wooden spoon, I think the dollar store sells those too.
Small side cutting pliers. Guess where you can get them if you don't have some already? :-)
Small bottle/tube of liquid latex - places that sell Halloween makeup usually have this, so try your pharmacy, department store, or your favourite Halloween store, or possibly even the dollar store - you don't need much.
Gloss Mod Podge or other GLOSS sealant - your craft store should have this, though check at your dollar store in the craft aisle.
Step 2: Tool Construction
Proceed with CAUTION:
On one end, embed the point of the needle into the wood. Try to centre it, and then insert it as deep as you can.
If possible, and you have a small enough drill but, make a little hole first so that the dowel doesn't split. I just used a pair of pliers and pushed it into the wood.
Look at the eye of the needle. Take the cutters/pliers and cut the end of the needle off about halfway through the eye. This will leave you with two prongs.
