Adding Rain Boots to a Summer Porch! #JuneGarden


I love decorating with rubber or rain boots. There are many different ways to display things in them!

Here, I took an old pair of my husbands rubber work boots, drilled holes in the bottom and spray painted them. I planted them with some fun flowers and they added a nice touch to the back yard!

More recently, I found this pair at a local thrift store and added fake flowers found at Hobby Lobby inside them!

It adds beautiful color and a fun touch to the front porch and doesn't hurt the boots at all! You could also set a long vase down the shaft of the boot and add cut flowers if you like!

For summer I decided I wanted another pair for my front porch! Maybe if I collect enough boots, the rain will come to Texas!!

I found this cute pair of children's galoshes on Ebay for $3 and knew they would work perfectly!

All I did was add some blue and white fake flowers to coordinate with my red, white and blue theme.

Placing them next to my sandwich board chalkboard and adding a few stars was just enough! All I need to do for 4th of July decorating is add some mini flags!!!
