Paint the Background of the Cowboy Boots

This door hanger is very simple to paint with few paint colors! To start, grab Sable Brown and Dark Chocolate to paint the background of the actual cowboy boot. Let’s get started!

  • Use the color Sable Brown to paint the top and sole of the boot at first.
  • Use the color Dark Chocolate to paint the bottom section of the cowboy boot.
  • Use Primary Red to paint the Santa hat on top of the boots.
  • Use White paint to paint the top and bottom of the Santa hat!
  • Add a second coat of Dark Chocolate paint to the cowboy boot.

Add Details to the Cowboy Boots

Before we add our string of lights to our Christmas cowboy boots, we need to add some details to the cowboy boots themselves. We’re going to start by grabbing some of the Artistro Paint Pens. I absolutely love these pens and reach for them often when I am painting. You can find these great pens on Amazon! When you purchase from this link, be sure to use the code TAMARABEN10 for 10% off! Here’s our next steps: 

  • Use a black paint pen to paint the etched lines down and around the cowboy boots.
  • Using the black paint pen, outline the Santa hat and white fur.
  • Using a Gold Paint Pen, trace the swirl design on the cowboy boots.

Add Christmas Lights to the Cowboy Boots

Let’s light up our Christmas cowboy boots so they’re ready for our door this season! We’re going to start by adding our light strands and then some lights to our Christmas boots. 

  1. Using a Green Paint Pen, trace the light strands on the cowboy boots.
  2. Using red, blue, yellow, neon green, and orange puffy paint start to add the lights to the light strand.
  3. Use Dark Green puffy paint to trace over the light strand and where the bulb connects to the light.
