When Cowboys Outgrow Their Boots

My two little cowboys have been growing quickly these last couple years.

One thing that we splurge on around here is cowboy boots.

I usually buy them 1 or 2 sizes bigger than their current size, to get good wear out of them, but at some point, they are too small and we move onto the next bigger size.

It hurt to think of giving their little boots away, so I came up with a way to keep them around the house, just a little longer.

I filled them with plaster of paris.

I put a plastic frozen juice container in one boot to make a vase.

Another boot, I use as a bookend.

Its mate is a doorstop.
When I'm not here, you can find me at BlueCastle, where I share frugal decorating tips and my life with two little cowboys.

Be sure to scroll down and look around The Project for more awesome ideas!
