Up Cycled and Altered Wooden Ice Skates

I have another Echo Park project to share today.  I picked up these wooden skates at a thrift store for next to nothing, they were already basecoated and the perfect colors to go with the Let it Snow Mini Theme collection!  I think this was one of the easiest altered art/up cycled pieces I have done.  I traced around the skate onto the pattern paper, cut it out, stitched around the edge, adhered and embellished with stickers and twine, easy, peesy!  The Twine is from Divine Twine.

Fantastically wonderful project, Laurel. You sure find some neat treasures at your thrift stores. How cool are these skates? Then you dress them up wonderfully. Excellent work! That snowman makes me smile. :)
