DIY Glitter Skates: these decorative skates are the perfect whimsical addition to your Christmas decor, and great addition to your front door.
Aren’t these glitter skates sweet, and you could leave them out as a decoration all winter, but they are really cute for Christmas too. The smaller the skate size the cuter they look.

How To Make Your DIY Glitter Skates
1. I found some little white leather ice skates at a second hand store. The smaller they are, the cuter they are.

2. Then I painted them with a coat of good old white glue, and then sprinkled them with glitter.
3. Lastly I replaced the laces with stain ribbon, use any colour that compliments your decor.
I love how magical they look. It was tempting to do the glitter in silver or even pink, but I decided that by doing them in white, I’d be able to change the ribbons I used as laces and have them match any future colour scheme. I went with silver ribbons this year, to match my amazing pot scrubber wreath, but I think they’d look great with red, or turquoise ribbon laces another year.
A boys pair in black with black glitter would be adorable too.
I hung them outside my door on a little chair to welcome Christmas visitors.
With DIY Glitter Skates, life really is a party!
