Rain Boot Vase

Rain Boot Vase

It worked. Several days ago I cut some forsythia branches and brought them inside. I followed these directions on how to force forsythia flowers.

Rain Boot VaseI’ve wanted to do this rain boot project since the very first time I saw it on Pinterest. Since I wasn’t going to actually wear the boots, I was determined to get a pair at a good price.

I finally found these cute boots at Target…on clearance!

Rain Boot VaseIt was so easy too. I just stuck a tall vase in each boot, added water and then the forsythia. I stuck some plastic grocery bags in the toes of the boots to give them a little shape.

Rain Boot VaseI have no idea how long the blooms will last. I hope at least for a few days. After they fade I think I might replace them with a potted green plant. Maybe ivy? I’ll just remove the vases, stuff more grocery bags in and set the pots right on top of the bags.

Thank you for stopping by.  I’ll be back on Monday with a preview of a Maison Blanche paint project. There’s an incredible Maison Blanche giveaway coming next week too. I’d like to wish each of you a very blessed and holy Easter. I hope wherever you are the day is filled with sunshine, family and friends.

Happy Easter!

    I saw a pair of red polka dot boots at Target, but I already have black polka dot boots so I didn’t buy them. If only I had read your post first. Now I will be on the lookout for some cute rainboots.
