Some red cord embellished with jingle bells, and some leftover grey fleece create the bow...a more masculine look than tulle and glitter... 
A couple of automotive parts come in handy ...the space between these brackets make for perfect skate display holders 
The pair help bookend the snow village...on display in our collision shops customer waiting area  

The woman's figure skate usually gets all the attention so I thought I'd utilize one of my son's old hockey skates as well in this year's display.
