Ice Skate Tree Decorations

I made these funky little skates with off cuts of felt saved from other projects. I stuffed them with polyfill from an old sofa cushion. They hang by the little ribbon tags that come inside the neck of t-shirts (you know, the ones that stop clothes sliding off the hanger), I save all these, very sad I know but so useful!! The 'blades' are paper clips from my stash and the laces are bits of embroidery thread left after making pictures, hence them being different colours!

 

I took this picture in the park (I got some very strange looks!) on a very cold Sunday afternoon. I wanted the shot to show some beautiful evergreen, this is a rather attractive holly bush I found.

 

I think these are a perfect non-religious decoration for this time of year and would be perfect to mark a baby's first christmas.

 

Thanks for looking, Daisie xxx
