About: ...after 30 years of becoming corporately numb, my dreams of not working (for pay) and instead creating with my hands has become a reality. Life is grand!

Intro: (Bottle) Boot Shapers

This instructable allows a sad discarded water bottle to find happiness with a lonely old boot.

While boot shapers are made specifically to help maintain the support required for stored boots, they can get expensive - - especially if your collection is as large as mine!

Step 1: Gather Up All Unloved Cowboy Boots

Rather than allowing your boots to lose their shape and make a mess of precious storage space, it is a good idea to put something inside the boot shaft.

Step 2: Introduce Them to Recycled Water Bottles and Watch What Happens!

By inserting a clean plastic bottle inside the boot shaft, your boots will maintain their shape and appear organized.

WARNING: Under this special relationship, boots and bottles have been known to gain back their self respect, reproduce and finish out their final days as tacky western decor!

To answer everyone's inquiries - these are not a woman's personal footwear collection (that would be me tho!). This is part of the room decor of a western theme room - all hand-done and it's fabulous! From friend of kcli

So much better than finding "stuff" to stuff the boots! Most clever as always.
