Upcycle Your Wellies

As Autumn approaches, many parents have bought new school shoes, P.E. trainers, and wellies for the forthcoming wet weather. But what can you do with the outgrown wellie boots cluttering up your hallway? If they are in good enough condition you could sell them on, pass them on to a friend’s child, or give them to a charity shop. Sadly, after a year’s worth of puddle stomping, most boots are not in a fit condition to be used by a second owner. Here’s some creative ideas to save those rain boots from the dustbin, and give them a new lease of life.

Homemade Clogs If the wellies have recently been outgrown, or were simply past their best, you can modify them into a new type of footwear, by cutting the leg part away, leaving the boot backless. This creates a pair of rubber clogs, perfect for temporary footwear when fetching something from the garden, or for stomping around the beach on the sand and in the water.

Wellie Boot Planters If you get nostalgic at the site of your children’s outgrown shoes and clothes, then this one is for you. By using the wellie boots as garden planters you’ll be reminded of all the adventures those boots went on with you, everytime you look at them.

You’ll need to puncture the soles of the boots to ensure sufficient drainage to cope with Britain’s wet climate.

To provide some extra stability you can add a few stones, or even a little wet cement, before you add the soil.

Garden Storage Abandoned boots make excellent light sabre holders, or tennis ball pots. They are the perfect, fun and quirky storage unit for those small toys that get lost amongst the lawn and foliage.

Welly Wanging This is a made-up sport to test your child’s aptitude for javelin and shot put in later life. Take a welly, make sure everyone else is standing a safe distance away, and throw that welly as far as possible. A great stress buster for all the family.

Obstacle Course Part fill the boots with sand, soil or wet cement, to add a little stability to them. They can then used as markers for a football obstacle course, or as obstacles to negotiate go-karts around.

Homemade Pet Feeder Cut the toe off the boot, leaving the sole intact. Fill the boot with cat biscuits or food pellets. As the animal scoffs the food from the toe area, more biscuits will roll down to refill it. Stuff the remaining boot into the top to act as a lid.

Family Scarecrow Gather up all the outgrown clothes you have and make a family scarecrow to guard your garden, with the boots as his footwear.

Bling Them Up You could use the boots as a canvas and unleash your children’s creativity upon them. Stick on sequins, gems and ribbons, for some crafty upcycling. Once you’ve finished decorating, you can move the boots onto one of the projects listed earlier.
