Tutorial ❅ Twiggy Christmas Skate Ornaments
Then all you do is drill one hole in the heel, one hole in the toe, and one at the top to accomodate a hanger. You then take a paper clip, unfold it, and trim it to the size of your boot. Shape the paper clip into a skate blade with needlenose pliers. Stick that paper clip into the holes. And BAM! Skates!
Nifty, eh? Look at the teeny skates… So cute. Now all you have to do is add a hanger and go to town decorating them.
Go ahead and have fun making yourself some twiggy Christmas skates!
You might have noticed this is the beginning of a brand new series. Remember last year’s Situation Christmas Ornament-ation Series (Series #3)? I had so much fun with it, I decided to do another ornament series again this year. Thusly, I’ll be back soon with more ornament action… See you then!

You've done it again, Michele! I am always amazed at how you see new things in ordinary objects.
Great idea ! ( I might steal it if you don't mind …)

Okay, the boots were fantastic. But these, THESE are something way beyond special. I'm gonna have to go out on a limb (hee, totally did not plan that) and say this is my favorite thing of yours EVER.
Oh my goodness – these are amazing! You must have a good eye for things to have spotted the skate shape in the twigs! Genius!

SO unique! What a great idea! These skates are truly whimsical… I'm going out to look for twigs and branches tomorrow morning.
I've been searching all over the internet looking for cool handmade items of good taste. I almost gave up and something linked me over to your page and I am overjoyed! Not only do you have good taste, but you have lots of fun activities for me to try :)!
Great idea! Thanks for the tut! 🙂
