This project is a guest post I did last year for the Inspiration Cafe before I joined and it ties in with a lot of the Christmas in July posts floating around at the moment.
Welcome to Trash Chic Week, where all week, garbage or old stuff will be transformed into the awesome!
A pair of kids outgrown Gumboots
- Mod Podge
- Painters tape
- Black Paint
- Red Glitter
- Faux Fur
- Hot Glue/Gun
Firstly and the most important step, if you plan on putting these on your table or using them to serve food, bleach and disinfect the shoes. There is nothing quite as classy as having your guests smell rotten kid feet at the table. Dry and give them a coat of Mod Podge.
Once they're dry tape off the bottom of the boots and paint them black
Then tape off the black paint and coat with Mod podge and glitter the rest of the boot
Be warned if you think glitter gets everywhere, faux fur is an absolute nightmare! However it does look fantastic.
One the glue was dry I grabbed a small glass, and put it inside the boot and fill as desired. I think artificial flowers or flatware could also look amazing. However my 2 year old was fascinated with these, so I went for the more kid friendly, candy canes.
