I wanted to share a little project I made some years back. This was another craft inspired by Mama Sass. My sister and I were home over the holidays, and she'd gathered supplies - essentially nothing but skates, brushes, and acrylic paints. We sat down and started painting. Here's what resulted:
I put greenery in the tops and hang them by my door. They're as pretty as any wreath. They have to hang a certain way for the road to 'flow' from one skate to the other. I love to paint primitive art. There's a certain charm about it. Here are two more of the scene's details:
I hope you enjoy them. They sure were a lot of fun to paint. My sister's skates have chickadees on a pine branch. I should have taken pics of hers, as well, but then you'd see who the really fine artist is in our family! These hang by my door every Christmas season, and I always get nice comments.
