DIY Ceramic Boot Planters
We painted these boots at Daycamp with 3rd-6th graders. Each child enjoyed using their creativity designing their boot.

These are perfect for me to paint and sell through my local flower shops and garden centers. Absolutely adorable! Maybe because I live close to their warehouse or just had geat delivery people, but mine arrived completely intact with not even so much as a scratch. I am definitely puchasing more of these soon! I already have the first dozen done!

Not a planter!!
This product says that you can add soil and plant in them.........well I tried it and the paint bubbles. We even used the paint they suggested. The inside of these are not glazed. the kids had fun painting them but we were planning to put a plant in them and now they are just a pencil holder. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!

I purchased these to use as centerpiece for a Humane Society fundraiser. When they arrived, I discovered that 4 boots were broken out of the 3 dozen that I ordered. The packaging makes it very difficult to remove the boots and replace the protective materials.

Best Program Ever!
I am an RA in college and I have to plan floor programs every month. I have a girls floor and it is tough to get all of them to come and join the floor programs, but all my girls came and I used all twelve boots! We had a lot of fun! The program started at 7pm and we didn't stop painting until 1am. The only bummer about the product is that it does not have a hole at the bottom to let the water run out if you over water the plant. Great size and very good quality!

I completely enjoyed this item. We were disappointed that 2 arrived broken but they will be preplaced. My class enjoyed painting them for Mother's day.

Product great, packaging not so much
The Boot Planters look great. We plant flowers every year as children¿¿¿s activity during Parent Association Meeting in April. Every year I am looking for new and unusual planters. I know kids will have fun and parents will have a kick out of the shape this year. If you are considering buying this product plan on buying extra as many of them break during shipping. Out of 6 dz. I bought 7 pieces broke. I called customer service and they were great, offered me options to ship new product, credit for broken ones. I had the time to have them replaced so I chose to get the planters (in which 3 broke). The product is great, but the packaging not so much. There is not enough Styrofoam to cover the boot so the middle part is exposed and easily broken. I would recommend this product, but buy extra just in case.
