A Cutting Edge on Wreaths

The winter season is drawing near! And for me that usually means I get to watch a little bit of figure skating. I love figure skating – watching, that is!

So what do you do when you have a basket of cast-offs that look like this?


Well, you can turn them into this.


Or this.


And if you’re super talented with a paint brush…


You might even want to canvas a skate and paint a scene on it like this!

When I saw these festive figure skates, they made me think of my Aunt. And I thought, how cool is this? My Aunt is an avid figure skating fan, and has travelled the world for years to take in the major skating events.

Wouldn’t this be a perfect way to salvage discarded old skates?

And repurpose them from once upon a time winter gear…


Into festive Holiday cheer!


And greet your guests with an entry something like this!


I bet my Aunt would think so!

What do you think of this spin on Holiday decorating for main entry decor? Would you give it a whirl?

Something to keep in mind if you do… be creative, and remember to protect your door and your guests from the blades of the skates!

It’s about coming home… If you want a remarkable space that tells your story, contact me to see how we can help!

  1. I love the fun that ice skates bring to winter holiday decor. I actually picked up a pair of skates (not real) at Kohls a few years ago and throw them over our banister usually. Just something fun to have around but I could definitely see these used to decorate the exterior with a sled and some greens. Very pretty!

  2. I’m so impressed, Sheila. You are the best at inventive ideas. I know where my old skates are going…if I can find them!
    Love you,
    Auntie Ada
