DIY: Rain Boot Redo

Yesterday, I guest posted over at Project Run and Play and I promised that I would explain how we got Ainsley’s awesomely red rain boots!  And seriously, it couldn’t be easier…
One of my lovely friends gave me a pair of her son’s old rain boots for free!  If you don’t have someone to give you a pair for free, try checking out Craigslist or thrift stores for an old pair!
Go buy a can of high quality spray paint.  Make sure it is a gloss paint that is labeled specifically for plastic or vinyl.  I prefer Rustoleum because it never chips off.
Give your boots several coats of the red paint and let dry for about an hour in between each coat.
Easy peasy, right?  
Let them dry for at least 24 hours before letting your kids wear them!
Ainsley seriously wants to wear hers everywhere!
Some other fun ideas include glitter (use a top coat to seal the glitter!), stencils, or even tissue paper with a top coat!  
So many ideas…..
