I hit the new and used store the other day, and came across some old wooden shoes.
Well, you convinced me I HAD to bring them home, even without a goal in mind.
Leaving the wooden shoes in their original patina (for now), a hole was predrilled in each, then attached to the entry wall with screws.
There’s just something about an organic wood patina that I can’t bear to treat nor cover. Sorry painters, but I think I’m a little addicted to them as is!
Well, that just started all kinds of other goodness going on. You can’t just hang fabulous wooden shoes filled with moss and plants and not do up the entire space! Nope. Spring decorating with mossy wooden shoes definitely happened.
And here we have what I think is my personal favourite piece. This mini cone shaped topiary was created with a solid sheet of moss, hot glued onto a cone form, then wrapped with jute twine. A little raffia inside a stained clay pot and it turned out as cute as can be!
My crafting friends while at the Michaels Hometalk Pinterest Party will recognize it! It was SO fun crafting along side everyone!
The moss topiaries made prior are hiding in the background as well.
Just a few little elements thrown together became an entryway all ready for spring! Even with snow still on the ground.
All because of a couple of old wooden shoes.
What would you have done with them?
