rustic cowboy boots



Just when you think it is time to get rid of your old boots, Sheplers women’s western wear comes up with a new idea for you to play around with! This month, we have the perfect recipe for DIY rustic cowgirl boots: the rustic look. Your boots also do not have to be an old pair you are ready to toss; if you find a cheap pair of cowgirl boots that are just your size, spruce them up with some DIY fun!

You will need:

  • 1 pair of old boots, or the pair of boots you want to transform
  • Rubber gloves to protect your hands
  • A small paint brush
  • Paper towels
  • Mod Podge clear acrylic sealer
  • Tan-colored Valspar spray paint
  • Turquoise paint
  • Rit Liquid Dye in the color Cocoa Brown Chocolate
  • Grocery bags


  1. To begin the DIY rustic cowgirl boots, fill them with the paper towels and old grocery bags to keep them standing up straight.
  2. Use the tan spray paint and cover them completely with 2 coats of spray paint. Wait 15 minutes between each coat.
  3. Let the boots dry for at least 30 minutes.
  4. After they have dried, use the small paint brush to paint the inside of the stitching design on your boots, and wherever else you wish to be turquoise. Only paint one coat.
  5. Make a mixture of half-water, half-Rit dye.
  6. Put on your gloves and dip the paper towel in the Rit dye mixture and rub it all over your DIY cowgirl boots. You can do as many coats of this as you please, but Sheplers women’s western wear suggest only doing two coats.
  7. Let them dry for at least one hour.
  8. After they Rit dye has dried, spray them with one coat of acrylic sealer.
  9. Let your DIY cowgirl boots dry overnight, and slide into them the next day!
