Before little Miss S was born I had no idea Earth had a day… Then she was born on a 22nd April and my husband found out that day was Earth Day, isn’t it fun? She loves to be outside, be barefoot, all the plants and flowers and animals!! I should have an animal shelter and she would be the happiest girl in the world!
So when some blogger friends told me about a blog hop on Earth day crafts I knew we would have fun. Is it something better for that day than to upcycle something and prevent if from end up in the garbage?
An old pair of rain boots little Miss S loved but she can’t wear because of: a) her feet are bigger b) the boots have cracks and they are not waterproof anymore.
I explained her my idea and she started painting them with my homemade chalk paint recipe.
One coat was enough and we let them dry.
The next thing I did was taking some spray paint and painted them.
Pink… of course!! Both boots.
While they were drying I took two water bottles and cut them to fit inside the boots. This way if some day I plan to have real plants inside them I can fill the bottles with water.
The last thing was to hot glue some ribbon around the boot to make it even prettier.
Don’t forget to see what the other ladies have done for this special Earth day projects.
