Skate Ornament

White felt figure skate tree ornament.

Approximate Time: Half an hour


  • scraps of white felt
  • 2 paper clips 2 inches long
  • embroidery thread for laces
  • Ad
  • needle with large eye
  • fabric glue


  1. Cut out two pieces of felt in a boot shape as shown.

  2. For each skate, slip the felt through the paper clip and glue along the side edges to secure.

  3. Using all six strands of embroidery thread, use an overcast stitch to make the laces, leaving enough thread to tie in a bow so that you can hang it on your tree.

Thank you! I purchased a set of these from an antique store they were very old/fragile. I cannot find them, everyone liked them so now I can make these. Thank you for posting this!

Great idea, how sweet! Thank you for sharing it. I'm thinking of adding initials or a name, or perhaps a small design.

Where is the pattern, please?

Editor's Note: I'm sorry but there is no longer a pattern attached for this post. It is a very simple shape so we have reworded the craft instructions rather than take down this cute older post.
