Saint Patrick’s Day is over, and I have already replaced the front door decor for something different. I was thinking about using one of the Easter crafts I have coming up. I was playing around on Pinterest looking for suggestions I could work with, and found a cute idea where the pinner had taken an umbrella and placed flowers inside then hung the umbrella by the hook. None of our umbrellas have hooks, so I went out to go thrifting to not only find a hooked umbrella but some fake flowers as well. As is always the case, there were none when I went looking, while there had been a bunch the last time I was there (for something else). I was inspired while at the third and final stop of my day when I spotted these cute little girl rain boots. I could use rain boots instead of an umbrella.
I was over looking at the boots to grab cute ones as planters, and thought it would be cute to hang them from the door as well. I found the fake flowers but didn’t really LOVE them, but there was a sale at the craft store so I was able to get flowers I do love for the front boot, and have the older flowers for the back boot. I really liked that idea once I thought about it, and it turned out much better looking than my original idea to just fill the front boot. I was going to glue the flowers into the boots when I envisioned this craft as I shopped, but once I was home and actually putting it together I realized I didn’t have to. Not only would figuring out how to glue the flowers in the boots be a trial, but there was no need to. My front door (and side door and back door) all have outer glass doors between the door to inside and the world. My wreath is protected from rain, wind, hail and anything else Mother Nature throws at me, so sticking the flowers in the boots and tying the boots together with ribbon to hang the finished craft was all I needed to do. All this cute spring door decor cost was $3 for the boots and $4 for the flowers total, and was only a few minutes to put together.
