How to Make Boot Spring (that holds your boots up straight)

.
.
Do you have the problem where your knee-high boots bend over and don’t stand up straight in your cupboard?  I know you can buy commercial boot trees, but here is a fabulous and very inexpensive alternative.

Joan Crawford hated wire hangers (or that’s what I believe, according to the film Mommy Dearest).  I don’t love them either for hanging your clothes on, but one of the lovely image consultants I trained (Mary-Ann from Colour Essence) came up with this ingenious idea for a boot spring, made from a wire coathanger.

Here is a short video I’ve put together to show you how it’s made.

  1. Smart!! Love hearing your accent!

  2. Oooh, brilliant!

    I'd been stuffing mine with newspaper, but that's kind of awkward. This is far more elegant.

  3. Great idea. I have tried laying boots down on a shelf, folding the tube from Christmas wrapping paper in half and hanging them from the clips on a skirt hanger. Shall try this with hangers and see how that goes.

  4. Clever idea!

  5. An eternal problem – so easily solved! What a great idea.

    Right now I use empty wine bottles to keep my boots upright. If I buy new boots, I drink more wine. If I have too many wine bottles, I buy more boots. A win-win situation, oui?

    Finally – a use for those revolting wire hangers. I knew they had to be good for something. I took some from my husband's dry-cleaning and voila! Thanks for the terrific idea.

  7. This is a MUCH better use for wire coat hangers! Thanks for the tip!
