Painted Ice Skates~ Frugal Christmas Idea


These are skates I picked up at the Goodwill for $1.50. I sold both of these sets at the Craft Booth in no time flat. I have a whole sack full that I picked up junkin all year ~ to paint for gifts.  So Cute!




* Clean your skates in and out.
* Paint your design in craft paints.
* Spray with a clear coat of paint.
* Add a festive ribbon instead of the shoe strings.
* Add sprinkles while the paint is still wet.

Love this idea! I have my skates that I got as a Christmas gift one year when I was a young girl. I loved them! I'll have to find some used old pairs and try this. Cute cute idea! You are quite the painter...I'm a paint by number! HA!
