Hanging Rainboot Garden

What It Is: Hanging Rainboot Garden

 Rosy Posy

Why We Love It: April showers bring May flowers, and this sweet idea makes that old chestnut literal! This is a great way to repurpose those adorable little boots that your kids have outgrown (and that you just can't bear to part with). You can also represent each member of your family with a boot!

What You'll Need: Several pairs of rainboots, all sizes and colors (the more the better!), soil and seeds, a drill or awl, nails or hooks.

How to Do It: Drill drainage holes in the sole of each boot, and then again in the top of the boot for hanging. Fill boots with soil, plant seeds or plants according to directions and hang as desired using a nail or a hook on a fence or wall. You could also arrange the boots on the ground as a collection of colorful containers.
