DIY Halloween Decorations, Understated Edition

October 13, 2023

The Ohio-based homeware store, A.J, Soseby sells “everyday tools for the home that are meant to be seen.” At this time of year, shopkeepers Adam and Jonathan take that dictum quite literally by displaying their wooden brooms on the exterior of their nearby Victorian home.

An understated seasonal display of brooms at &#8\2\16;The Witches&#8\2\17; House.&#8\2\17; On the top floor, a trio of hand brooms adorn the windows.

Their turreted home occupies a prominent plot in Old Town East and is known locally as “The Witches’ House.” “With this title, it only made sense to create a parking lot for all the brooms,” explains Adam.

The couple sourced the brooms from Home Depot.

Curious about the exterior house paint color? You&#8\2\17;ll have to wait. &#8\2\20;The paint color was created by me,&#8\2\2\1; says Adam. &#8\2\20;We’re working with a paint vendor hoping to create it for market.

Installation day.

The annual installation also provides the owners with a chance to spruce up their evergreen exterior: “We love the idea of simple installation,” says Adam. “We use screws to affix the brooms to our home. At the end of the season we remove the brooms, patch and paint the areas. We use this as an opportunity to apply a fresh coat of paint to highly trafficked areas of our home.”
