Folk Craft Happy Hour | Making A Turkey Wing Broom

My intention with this series is to inspire YOU! This is not a tutorial per se, but a look into trying something new! That's what I'm attempting to do with this series, the Folk Craft Happy Hour! If you have a folk craft you're interested in trying and maybe intimidated or merely haven't bitten the bullet, I'd love to hear about it! Leave a comment down below!

I CONTINUALLY CALL THIS A TURKEY TAIL BROOM in the video, but it is, in fact, called a Turkey Wing Broom. There is a Turkey Tail Mushroom! Is that what I was subconsciously thinking of? Perhaps. But anyway, this style of broom is called a Turkey Wing Broom because it used to be made with actual turkey wing feathers!
