Ski Decorations – Can I tell you how excited I am that it’s Trash to Treasure Tuesday?? Lovely friends, I have some real junk to share today, which is even better! So you all know how I moved to a new neighborhood, right? These nice people don’t actually know how much I enjoy rummaging through their curbside trash for potential treasures…except now that they apparently do.
I saw the POD being delivered to the empty house next door and was excited that we would soon have new neighbors. The next day I saw a huge pile of stuff by the curb and thought it was weird that someone was waiting for their turn to put away all that junk. I mean, why did they pack things they didn’t want?
So I decided to be neighborly and go to introduce myself (and take a closer look at this pile of potential) when I noticed that there were three pairs of perfectly good skis in the pile! (One set is missing from the photo above.)

It turned out that the lady I met owned the house and was renting it out. He was using the fifth bedroom for storage and decided most of it would just have to go…like three perfectly good sets of skis!
I introduced myself and asked if he would mind taking the skis for a vacation project and he was happy to let me have what I wanted. However, I held back and just took my skis. So of course my neighbors saw me walking back with them… “This will make a great holiday decoration!”, I tell them.
It’s amazing what spray paint, pretty greenery (Hobby Lobby) and a big fat buffalo bow (also Hobby Lobby) can do!
My husband removed all my bandages and I gave them a few coats of Colonial Red Rustoleum spray paint (satin finish):

I made this set from a pair of green ones I picked up at Pier One after Christmas last year:
They have the most realistic greenery. I bought several when they were marked down last year and used them to decorate our home. I will be sharing more Christmas decorations soon!
This project really couldn’t be easier. After I painted them (one coat on the back and two coats on the front) I drilled a small hole with a regular old drill bit. I crossed them exactly as I wanted, then flipped both skis.
I trimmed a little green stem and then attached them directly to the skis with floral wire:

On each stem where you can’t see well I added a little more wire to hold them firmly in place.
It started raining so I didn’t get many pictures from under the porch, but here is one…
You can add them to almost any corner of your home to add a festive touch. Adding a small set of battery powered lights would make them even prettier!
I’ll be back on Thursday to share my Christmas decorated dining room! I managed to paint the rest of the chairs in the dining set so I can finally check that project off the list, yuck!

UPDATE: Check out what my dining set was like HERE and see my Christmas ready dining room! Do you have old or modern skis that you don’t need? Add them to your home! Here are some ideas for recycling or repurposing old skis to give your home a wintery feel at once.
Turn old skis into cool pieces of furniture for your vintage or farmhouse or cottage – they’re totally on point. Yu can create a coat rack – wall-mounted or regular, a bench for your porch or entrance, a shelf, a lamp, a hearth, and more. Think about the furniture you need and figure out how to incorporate old skis into the project.

Hang a pine cone above a modern headboard with a low frame. In this scenario, hanging on the fence with nails is easy, but Command hooks or small nails will also help.
Enjoy the smell of Christmas all season long by hanging a fun three-quarter length garland around the window, like the owners of this cozy and cozy cottage did.
Wrap plain glass vases with strands of yarn and thread with wooden knitting needles. For more textured strands, braid lengths of yarn and tie vases. Add buttercups, baby’s breath, snowberries and branches.
