What I made with an old pair of boots
Inspiration struck when I was about to throw away my daughters old boots. Halloween is just around the corner, the leaves are turning color and many of them are falling. Here, it has been very dry, until about 10 days ago, it started raining then, and in this short time we have had more than enough wet stuff.
However, the drought has turned the leaves crisp and many of them are falling already as you can see on the picture below.
Two pieces of 2×4’s were nailed into a piece of 2×10 to form the base of this project.
Then it was painted Pumpkin orange and black to the sides.
Next the ruffle was made: purple with orange lace.
Left over trimming from a couple of Mason jars made for a nice touch along the top of the boots with the green and pearls adding some class.
With hot glue everything was tacked in place. Some scattered leaves from the Dollar store added just the right interest, as well the addition of a few bigger once on the side of the one boot.
Halloween and spiders, this is a given!
And here it is sitting on the front step. What do you think?
A close up of the leaves and the ruffle.
And one more picture. I love how this project came together.
What project are you doing this year from Halloween?
