Re-purposed Cowboy Boot Planter

Repurposed Cowboy Boot Planter with flowers

Turn a cowboy boot vase 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.
