SNEAKERS AND OVERALLS.
1 GALLON OF ELMER'S GLUE
PVC PIPE (1 1/2" X 2' TALL)
MOTAR/CEMENT (W/O ROCKS)
AMERICAN ACCENT ANTIQUE COPPER PAINT KIT (OPTIONAL)
A FIVE GALLON BUCKET
DAY 1:I CUT TWO PIECES OF 1 1/2" PVC ABOUT 2' TALL. THEN MIXED UP SOME CONCRETE/MOTAR (W/O ROCKS), I THEN SHOVED THE CONCRETE INTO THE SNEAKERS, THEN PLACED ONE PVC PIPE IN EACH SNEAKER AND FILL PIPE WITH CONCRETE ALSO (THIS GIVES MY OVERALLS A NICE WEIGHTED BASE)
DAY 2:I POURED SOME GLUE (ABOUT HALF OF THE 1 GALLON) INTO BY 5 GALLON BUCKET. TURNED OVERALL INSIDE OUT, PLACE IN BUCKET AND SMUSHED GLUE INTO JEANS, THEN TURNED JEANS RIGHT SIDE OUT AND DID THE SAME. THIS WAS KINDA MESSY!!
I THEN USED MY HANDS AND KINDA SQUEEZE OUT THE EXCESS GLUE. I USED MY 8' LADDER WITH A DOWEL TO SUPPORT MY OVERALS AT THIS STAGE. I PLACE A PVC PIPE OVER MY DOWEL TO KEEP THE OVERALLS FROM DRYING WITH A TIGHT BEND IN THE TOP. I THEN PLACE MY SNEAKERS UNDERNEATH THE OVERALL. I USED A PAINTBRUSH TO SPREAD GLUE OVER THE SNEAKERS, I THEN USED MY STAPLE GUN TO STAPLE THE OVERALLS INTO THE SNEAKER (ABOUT FOUR STAPLES INTO THE BACK OF EACH SHOE)
LET THE OVERALL DRY (SEVERAL DAYS)
I THEN USED A PIECE OF 2" PVC AS A FUNNEL AND POURED SOME MORE CONCRETE DOWN EACH LEG OF THE PANTS (ABOUT 6" DEEP). THE PAIR I SAW FROM "MY TROUSER" COMPANY HAD DONE THIS, AND I FIGURE THIS WOULD HELP THE SNEAKER AND JEANS HOLD TOGETHER.
MY FIRST PAIR I JUST GAVE TWO LIGHT COATS OF URETHANE.
maybe if the overall ones were made out of infant size overalls?
I may try this soon! lol!
I have a little clay overall planter that I bought and just love...only its too small :( I'm thinking a size 6 months or size 12 months infants jean overall may be perfect size to hide my cheap plastic pots! lol!
