Hi I'm Mel, usually found over at Mellywood's Mansion, I was asked to work a shift here at the Inspiration Cafe for the Christmas rush.
Today I'm sharing my Christmas Boot Centrepiece, one of my Trash Chic items if you want to know what Trash Chic is you can read about it here
A pair of kids outgrown Gunboots
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 ModPodge.
Once they're dry tape off the bottom of the boots and paint them black
Then tape off the black paint and coat with Modpodge and glitter the rest of the boot
Once that is dry cut your faux fur to size and hot glue around the top 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.
This was such a simple project and so much fun, if you would like to check out a few more of my Christmas things like my
