Winter Decorating with Ice Skates.......
with Christmas just 25 days away,
you might think the title would be
but what i have in mind would be beautiful all winter long.
let me backtrack a minute.
i've just returned home from visiting my Mom in Michigan.
while there, I found a pair of my old ice skates.
of fun times with family and friends and of VERY sore tailbones:)
i had seen pretty decorations that started with an ice skate,
so when i found my skates,
i grabbed them up.......one for me and one for my Mom.
i didn't have much time,
so i simply attached a clip of greenery and a red cardinal to the skates.
then my mom hung it on her back porch.
i'm telling you, i LOVE this sweet little ice skate decoration.
not bad for a dollar decorating job, huh?
and not just for Christmas, so no need to take it down in
(yep, it's coming that fast:)
i found some more cute ideas for decorating with skates to inspire you.......
~~hanging on an old sled
(and by the way, that's another cool way to decorate.......
with an old sled!)
old skis too!
~~on a window or front door
~~above a fireplace
~~on the corner of a chair
you can hang them ANYWHERE!
(sorry...i couldn't resist a dr. seuss moment:)
~~add a bit of glitter and a sparkly pink star for a little girls room
~~create a pretty vignette with them
just look at these PRETTY felt skates hung as a garland.
if you go here, you can find out how to make these!
and you can use them to hold little gifts, too:)
~~last but not least, you can hang them on a tree.
how GORGEOUS is that!
so start rummaging through your oldie boxes, hit thrift stores, check online.....
and grab yourself a sweet little pair of ice skates!
cause nothing says winter like ICE, right? hahaha
