Fish bucket - Keep your just-caught fish fresh; bring them home from the river in a water-filled boot.

Birdhouse - Take an old boot outdoors and hang it upside down. It probably won't be long before wrens, swallows, or chickadees build a nest in the toe area.

Umbrella stand - Weight the bottom of an attractive old leather boot (a riding boot perhaps) or a tall rubber boot with pebbles or marbles and place near your home's front or back door.

My sister in law had an old pair of cowboy boots on her deck railing which she filled with dirt and some cactus - cute!

Makes a great planter when nailed on top of post. Drill or cut couple drain holes. Inch or two of gravel in bottom helps drain.

If you are a single woman living alone, it's always a good idea to make it look like there is a man in the house. Leave an old pair of workboots (the bigger the better!) outside your door, as if the big, burly guy who wears them has taken them off before going inside to be with his loving lady (that would be you). Would-be bad guys might think twice!!!

(b) use them as planters, put hen and chicks in for a decorative touch

A friend suggested this to me, and it's a winner. Chet, one of the last original cowboys, said you can cut the foot part off, sew, glue, or tack the bottom part together, and you will have an excellent tool holder. Hang it, or them, in your car, or garage. Thanks, Chet!
