Yard sale find: pair of ice skates

Plow and Hearth features this holiday decoration for $29.95, and yesterday I bought ice skates at a yard sale for $2.00! I’m totally psyched to invent my own holiday decoration with the pair or individually. If I use the individual skate, I can keep one and gift one. I found another decoration using a skate as part of a wreath, but I think it might be bulky.

Does anyone have their own version to share? I’m open to ideas. It’s going to be odd trying to work with pine and synthetic snow on a 100 degree day. Maybe it will have a cooling effect?
