Upcycled Rain Boots

689 Views
Don't throw those faded old boots away. Give them an upcycle and turn them into a pretty vase for flowers.
Difficulty: Easy
I had a pair of rain boots that had become sun faded. After wiping them well I spray painted them Peacock Blue gloss spray paint.

They were even pretty after spraying them but I decided to give them dots.
Using a paper punch I made a large hole in a recipe card. I randomly stenciled dots here and there. Another easy way to create dots is to spray the entire boot white. Then place dot stickers and spray again with a color. Remove the stickers and voila, easy dots!

I placed a quart jar inside and filled them with Pussy Willows, Daffodils, and white blossoms. All clipped from my garden.

    Such a cute idea! I'd set them in my entryway or on the porch.
