Six Super Fast and Easy Upcycled Boot Tree Ideas

9 Materials
Do you have boot issues? Well I did.

The weather is getting nicer here and it was time to move the boots to the back of the closet. I wanted them to stand up instead of flopping over like this.
I have seen people use pool noodles for this which seems like a great idea but I didn't have any old pool noodles and I like to use stuff/ junk when ever I can for my DIY projects.
So I went to the recycle bin and fund this stuff.

You might be surprised at how many recyclable items you can use to make boot trees. My list includes some obvious items such as glass and plastic bottles but you can also make boot trees from old magazines, wire hangers tin can and plastic bags.

Here is a sort time lapse video showing all six boot tree ideas. The actual time to make them was about 20 minutes.

Suggested materials:

  • Plastic Grocery Bags
  • Wire hanger
  • Glass bottle
