Walmart Wellies!!!

So my girls love rainboots!! They have so much fun tromping around the yard in the rain. The bigger the puddles the better. Unfortunately, Sweetpea's boots had become too small and of course she was very upset that her sister was able to splish splash, but she wasn't. So she conned her Grandmother into taking her to Walmart and buying her a pair of $12 wellies. They were pretty cute by Walmart standards, and I have to say, whoever (or is it whomever) is doing the buying these days at Wally World is really outdoing themselves. I have found some cutie patootie things over the summer. Anyway, she purchased the red ones with pink trim. Cute right???




They are just precious the way they are, but who doesn't love making precious even better??? Enter....CRICUT!!!!! (This is where everyone should be applauding wildly!) I dragged out my best crafting buddy, opened up the SCAL (Sure Cuts Alot) software, unrolled the pink vinyl(which looks white in the pics, but trust me, it's bubble gum pink) and bibbidy, bobbidy, boo ......



I think they turned out Plum Precious, which we all know is much better than just Precious!!! She loves them!!! So, everyone run out to Walmart, and grab your pair of $12 Wellies and get crafting...you know you want to!!!

  1. What a great idea! I would never have thought to monogram boots, AND now you won't have to worry about anyone else walking off with them!

  2. So cute! The monogram is personal and practical. My son had his new winter boots lifted a few years ago (by mistake I'm sure) at Church one day. Some little boy went home in his new boots and left the same style, much smaller and very well used.

  27. Adorable! My piXies would love these (who am I kidding, I would wear these myself)! May I ask, did the vinyl decal stick well enough on it's own, or did you use eXtra adhesive or sealer of some kind?

  29. How cute! LOVE this idea. I've been wanting to purchase a Cricut for projects just like this but have a question - does the vinyl peel off when the Wellies get wet? Thanks!

  35. I have been picking up rubber rain boots at garage sales, the smaller the better. I was thinking of adding flowers or something and using them as porch decorations come spring, but now I have a whole new direction!
