Instructables
Why would anyone ever want to make their own boot brush you ask? Well, for one they can be quite expensive if you don't shop around. Another reason is that many of the so called boot brushes don't work very well, such as the cutesy animal with bristles on it's back, or the brushes don't make good contact over the whole boot or shoe.

I had been searching for cheap brushes for a few months to complete this project, but I hadn't found any reasonably priced broom heads or scrub brushed until last week. I spotted some cheap scrub brushes at Target that I thought would work perfectly.

So this project cost me a grand total of $4, with a few scrap materials thrown in.
