There’s nothing we love better than a good DIY project. On this episode of The Marc and Mandy Show, Mandy shows how to make a festive wreath using old skates. Check out the video above or keep reading for the DIY instructions.
Mandy: As your kids get older, what do you do with the old pairs of skates that everybody outgrows? This fantastic DIY I love. It’s a take on a wreath. So what you’re going to do is get yourself some craft paint. We chose this beautiful teal color. I love it. To me, it just pops against the white of the door and the white of the snow. It’s a very wintry color. So, what we did is we took this teal craft paint, we put a couple of coats right over top of the skates, and let it dry. We did about three coats on this until you get that nice solid cohesive color on it. Then you want to make sure that you spray it with clear coat, because especially if you’re putting this on your outside door you want to make sure that the winter elements don’t wear away the paint. So spray a clear coat it and then build a floral to go inside it. We used white roses, white florals, greenery, and added a pop of the same color in with some Christmas ornaments. And don’t at forget the very end thread it with new laces so they’re shiny bright. And this will look amazing on your door this holiday!
