Make a broom from a coconut palm leaf

Puerto Viejo

Leaves and sand accumulated on our patio during the night and we had nothing to sweep it clean, so I made a broom. If you want to make one, follow these simple steps.

You will need:

  • One big palm leaf, fresh green or dead brown
  • Twine, about 50 cm
  • Knife

Make the broom:

  1. Cut the leaflets from the leaf.
  2. Strip the center veins from the leaflets with the knife.
  3. Tie the leaflet center veins together.
  4. Sweep the floor.
