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.

Materials:

  • second hand children’s skates
  • white glue
  • small paint brush
  • glitter
  • ribbon

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.
