Yes, you read that title right!
I've gone country!
Actually, since I am a true blue Texan,
I am just a Country Girl at Heart!
I love anything even remotely resembling "down home country".
When I set out to design a pen holder in honor of the
Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo,
I could not have chosen anything other than a Boot
and some of the BEAUTIFUL ribbons that Bonnie has in the store.
Here is the pen holder made from my daughter's old boot:
Yes, this is an actual boot that once fit upon my baby's tiny foot!
No longer is she that tiny, but I could not bear to part with those little boots...
so I decided to make a functional piece of art so that I can always remember how adorable she was in her little RED BOOTS.
To make the pen holder, I first inserted a wedge of floral foam.
Next, I decorated the boot with the beautiful Gingham Ribbon and
Natural Jute Ribbon that Bonnie has in the store.
Last, I inserted my pens into the floral foam in just the perfect angle to achieve the look of flowers growing out of it!
THis was super easy to make and I absolutely ADORE it! Plus, I get TONS of compliments about it since I now have it sitting on my desk at work!
I hope I have inspired you to recycle something
and turn it into something beautiful!
Oh heck, go garage selling and find an old pair of toddler boots and make your own boot pen holder!
I promise...You will LOVE it!
