Instructables
This past April, I spent a couple of weeks vacationing on one of the Gulf Islands; it has become a yearly thing now.  I spent a lot of time on the beach so was glad that I had packed a long a pair of rubber boots. Well that was until I was standing by the water as a wave came rushing over my boots and icy cold water poured inside over my socks and toes.  It would seem that there were several large holes in those boots and it got worse as I continued to wear them. 

When I got back home I re-purposed them into a planter since the boots were beyond repair.  At first I was just going to put a plant in each boot and place them on either side of my balcony door, but then I got the idea to arranged the boots so that they looked like they were walking.  Ideally I would have liked to place them in a garden or on the lawn but since I live on the second floor I don't have a yard just a balcony, so I just put them in a large planter and added some grass seeds.

Cool for cats!
My husband "kills" loads of boot-pairs every season, but unfortunately they're not as decorative as the ones you used... just plain green... hmmm maybe there's a way to paint them - got to research :)

very decorative idea!

You can probably just use an acrylic paint on them.
