Upcycled Rain Boot DIY Planter Projects.
The key to being frugal is “waste not, want not,” which is why I love to upcycle! Upcycling inside to make pretty home décor is always fun, but I especially love to upcycle in the garden! Something I’m really into these days is cute rain boot planters. You may have seen some cement/ceramic versions in stores, but did you know you can use real rain boots too? For some inspiration, here are 10 Adorable Rain Boot Planter Ideas!

Upcycled rain boots make lovely planters for flowers! You just wouldn’t want to use real rain boots to plant any produce in (the boot lining could leach into the soil, and then into your plants). But for flowers, they’re an inexpensive and fun way to brighten up your garden or front porch!
Adorable Rain Boot Planter Ideas
We’re slowly decluttering our garage and I found a pair of striped rubber boots that my daughter doesn’t wear anymore. I planted them with some faux forsythia until I can plant some real flowers in them. They’re out on the front porch and I think they look really pretty as they go nicely with the forsythia wreath on my door. Here are a few tips to help you with decorating with rain boots.
- Hit yard sales. When you are out and about if you see a yard sale, stop by! You never know if someone is selling some old rain boots.
- Paint ugly boots. If you come across some ugly or plain boots, go crazy and paint them all sorts of colors and designs. Just have fun with it and you can’t go wrong.
- Use faux and real flowers. It doesn’t matter if you use real or silk flowers. Both will work well and add some extra pizzazz to walk-ways, porches, and patios.

I really love them used instead of a wreath like this one from Red Hen Home. She had boots that were a color that wouldn’t work for her front door so she spray painted them! Now that’s smart!
