Cinnamon Broom: Origin and Significance
Cinnamon brooms are a popular decorative item during the Halloween season. These brooms are made from dried broomcorn and cinnamon sticks and are often used as an air freshener. The origin of cinnamon brooms is not clear, but they are believed to have originated in the United States.
Cinnamon has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties and was once considered more valuable than gold. It is believed that cinnamon was first used in ancient Egypt and was later traded along the spice routes to Europe. In the United States, cinnamon was first used by Native Americans for its medicinal properties.
Cinnamon brooms are often associated with Halloween and the fall season. They are used to decorate homes and add a festive touch to Halloween parties. The scent of cinnamon is said to evoke feelings of warmth and comfort, making it the perfect addition to any fall celebration.
In addition to their decorative value, cinnamon brooms also have practical uses. They can be used to freshen up a room and are often used to mask unpleasant odors. Cinnamon is also believed to have antibacterial properties, making it a natural way to keep a room clean and fresh.

- Rustoleum Yellow spray paint

The cinnamon broom serves as the base for the wreath and can be found at most craft and big box stores during the fall season. Floral wire and scissors will be used to secure the cinnamon brooms to each other and to help attach the ribbon

Choosing the Right Cinnamon Broom
When it comes to making a DIY cinnamon broom wreath with candy corn colors, choosing the right cinnamon broom is crucial. Afterall, they come in all different shapes and sizes.
The size of the cinnamon broom you choose will depend on the size of the wreath you want to make. If you are making a small wreath, you should choose a smaller cinnamon broom. On the other hand, if you want to make a larger wreath, you will need a larger cinnamon broom.
Here is a table that can help you choose the right size cinnamon broom for your wreath:

The Cinnamon broom sizes I used for my wreath is 36″ long.
The fragrance strength of a cinnamon broom is another important factor to consider. Some cinnamon brooms have a strong fragrance, while others have a more subtle scent.
If you want your wreath to have a strong cinnamon scent (especially after you spray paint them), you should choose a cinnamon broom with a strong fragrance. However, if you prefer a more subtle scent, a cinnamon broom with a milder fragrance would be a better choice.
Here are some tips to help you choose the right fragrance strength:
- If you have a large room or open space, choose a cinnamon broom with a strong fragrance.
- If you have a small room or prefer a more subtle scent, choose a cinnamon broom with a milder fragrance.
I used to think there was only one “cinnamon broom” scent. Nope, recently they have come out with a plethora of different broom smells. I chose to stick to the original “cinnamon broom” scent.
Selecting Candy Corn Colors
Color Palette Inspiration
When selecting candy corn colors for a DIY cinnamon broom wreath, it is important to consider the traditional colors of candy corn: yellow, orange, and white. That being said, there are many other variations of candy corn colors that can be used to create a unique and eye-catching wreath.
I chose glossy and bright spray paint colors to make sure the paint really “popped” when you looked at it. You can opt for a more subtle candy corn colors like using a softer yellow and orange hue or simply using a matte sheen instead of glossy. Ultimately, it’s your preference.
Incorporating Candy Corn Colors with Spray paint
Candy corn colors are a perfect choice for a DIY cinnamon broom wreath. These colors are bright, cheerful, and perfect for fall. Here’s how I painted the end of the broom.
Create a Gradient Effect
Start by using painters tape to tape off the different sections of the broom you want to paint. You have to tape each individually and wait until each section dries before moving on to paint the next section.
The base will be white. The next color that sits in the middle will be orange and then yellow.
Creating the Wreath Base
To start creating the DIY Cinnamon Broom wreath, the first step is to create the wreath base. Since the cinnamon brooms are essentially the wreath base, all I had to do was attach them together.
I laid the brooms at an angle over each other and used the floral wire to attach them together. Easy peasy.
Add a bow (or bows) to hide where you attached the two brooms together
A simple bow made from ribbon in colors that complement the candy corn colors of the wreath can add a festive touch. Use wire-edged ribbon to make the bow easier to shape and keep its form.
I’m not the best at ribbon making or ribbon tying so I won’t give you much of a tutorial on this. Just know that I layered two heavier ribbons on top of each other for the main long bow. Then I made a smaller bow to sit in the middle to “finish it off.”
Use Candy Corn as a Decoration
Finally, you can also incorporate actual candy corn into your wreath design. Simply glue candy corn onto your wreath for a fun and festive touch. This is a great option if you want to add a little bit of whimsy to your wreath.
Maintaining Your Wreath
Once you have completed your DIY Cinnamon Broom wreath with candy corn colors, it is important to maintain it properly to ensure it lasts for as long as possible. Here are some tips to keep in mind:
1. Keep it in a dry place
The wreath should be kept in a dry place to prevent mold and mildew from forming. If the wreath gets wet, allow it to dry completely before storing it.
2. Avoid direct sunlight
Direct sunlight can cause the colors to fade and the cinnamon sticks to dry out. It is best to keep the wreath in a shaded area.
3. Refresh the scent
Over time, the cinnamon scent may start to fade. To refresh the scent, simply sprinkle a few drops of cinnamon essential oil onto the wreath.
4. Remove any dust
Dust can accumulate on the wreath over time. To remove any dust, gently brush the wreath with a soft-bristled brush or use a hairdryer on a cool setting.
5. Store it properly
When storing the wreath, wrap it in tissue paper or plastic wrap to prevent it from getting crushed. Store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
By following these simple tips, you can ensure that your DIY Cinnamon Broom wreath with candy corn colors stays looking and smelling fresh for as long as possible.
