    saw this on pin…then suddenly saw a pair of children’s (boy’s) black figure skates in a thrift store…quickly grab them & now going to create a decorative pair but painting them white first (all girls in the family). any suggestion on what type of paint I should use in order for it to cover the black? wish me luck…thanks for the inspiration!

      Glad you like them! I have had really good luck with Martha Stewart multi surface paint from Michaels (its in little acrylic bottles)they have a pearl white color that would give you an antique look. Good luck. Please post a pic on my FB page when you’re done so I can have a look! Happy Holidays!

    HI! I saw someone made a Valentine flower arrangement in an old skate and was selling on Ebay. I didn’t get them there but decided to make my own. I purchased a child’s pair of beginner skates so they have a double blade and are able to stand up. I got all kinds of cutesy things to stuff inside besides silk flowers, a victorian valentine card on a stick, a woodent heart, I cant wait to share with my kids at school! <3

  5. How did you make the cream and rust bells? Can you buy them? Love them!

    • Virginia says:

      The bells wer actually a part of the stem I stuck into the skate. I think you could make them, I’ve seen pins that say you can rust things, I’d love to know!
