Matchstick boot

Harry Graney

Shoes can be made out of almost anything. This women’s boot has been painstakingly made from matchsticks!

Moulded and stuck the matchsticks round a boot shaped mould. The matchsticks were carefully shaped using pliers. It took six months to make and there a lot of matches used!
