Repurposed Cowboy Boot Planter

Repurpose a cowboy boot vase and turn it into a real planter!

I found this polyresin cowboy boot at a hobby store. It reminds me of our rustic wedding decor.

It would have fit in perfectly. Apparently it is intended to be a vase.

I wanted it as a planter so I drilled (more accurately, my husband drilled) a couple of drainage holes in the bottom.

From vase to planter- that counts as repurposing, right? :0}

I planted Soprano Purple in it because they look kind of like wildflowers and would fit the rustic look of the boot.

I wanted to add some white to it but didn’t have any white flowers, but I did find some white flowers blossoming from weeds that did the trick, at least for the photos.

I’ll add an actual plant with white flowers later.
