Jay,
Sorry I'm so slow getting these images to you of the Chimney Sweep Brooms from our Mary Poppin's Dance Recital. I used the dance club's canes (already black), paper plates, glue gun, black base paint and black pipe-cleaners. I made 15 in total and they looked fantastic on stage. They survived 3 dress rehearsals and 2 recitals. Only one was destroyed during the 2nd dress rehearsal but I had extras. You were an absolute Life Saver!!!!!

Images: The first two pictures was my first attempt. The next two pictures on the cane is the finished product

Sincerely,
Tammy . . . whose favorite saying is now "Spit-Spot!"
