Victorian Christmas Boot craft

This elegant Victorian Boot is the perfect place to tuck holiday sweets and treats.

  • 1.

    Use a tall plastic container such as a large spice bottle for the body of the boot. Crumple foil to shape a pointed, curled toe. Hold the foil next to the bottle and attach it by filling in the gaps with Crayola Model Magic® compound.

  • 2.

    Cover the foil with your choice of a Model Magic color and smooth it. Then cover the entire boot with Model Magic compound, smoothing and shaping as you go.

  • 3.

    Roll out more Model Magic compound. Try rolling it between two pieces of vinyl to get a really smooth sheet. Use a modeling tool to cut out four long triangles. Attach the triangles to decorate the top of the cuff.

  • 4.

    Add small Model Magic balls to the triangle points and to the pointed tip of the boot. Air-dry the boot. Model Magic compound dries to the touch overnight and dries completely in 2 to 3 days.

  • 5.

    Add embellishments with Crayola Glitter Glue and Squeezables™3-D Paint. Air-dry the paint before filling your boot with treats such as wrapped candy or craft supplies.
