Why not upcycle old wellingtons and boots to make quirky pots for the garden. A great way to share the memories of little or big feet.

Stick vinyl or Duck tape to  wooden plaques to label all the pots, fruit trees and vegetables growing on the patio. Vinyl and Duck tape are waterproof so they make the perfect resource for the job.

You will need

• Wellington boot – drainage holes can be drilled in through the bottom
Cricut Explore™ machine and Design Space™ software

How to make
