What To Do With Old Rain Boots

I kept these rain boots even after they had sprung some leaks and recently,  I finally figured out what to do with them. Make 'em into planters! I planted them up with some of my favorite, easy-to-grow flowers, pansies.

You don't need to fill the boot completely with soil, although you can if you want to. I stuffed the foot and about halfway up the boot with wads of sturdy kraft paper, then poured in the planting mix on top of that.  I'm so pleased with this project, I started thinking about going to the thrifts and picking up some more rain boots for planting purposes. Would make a cute Valentines/Spring gift for someone who appreciates whimsical things :)
