Rain Boots Refreshed

Goodwill Rain Boots can now be checked off the list!

I keep this extensive list of treasures that I’m always on the lookout for.

And these have been checked off the list:

Spring Door Decor

I shopped the house for the white tulips, originally bought at Hobby Lobby, I know they were bought at 50%.  Not that my memory is good, but because I never pay full price 😉

I ripped the green grassy stuff from an old wreath, as I rarely throw anything away.

Rain Boots Tulips

Before you add any artificial flowers to an arrangement, you need to bend and fluff them to look more natural.  True, we all know they’re fake but giving them a realist look just makes all the difference!

Rain Boots Tulips and boots

 Stick them in the boots and continue shaping until you like the way they look.

Stick the grass in the other boot and you’re almost ready to add a burlap ribbon.  Step back and make any adjustments!

    I am DEFINITELY adding rain boots to my thrifting list. I never look at the girly kids’ clothes when I’m yard saling or thrifting. But I will now. I’d love to have a pair of those in my size!

    And if you hadn’t told me they were fake, I would have never guess those weren’t real tulips.

    Love, love, love your spring “wreath.” Thanks for sharing.
