Easy Christmas Idea #4 ~Vintage Sports Equipment

Thanks for stopping by to see this fourth post in my Easy Christmas Ideas series.


Easy Christmas Ideas ~A series at Blue Clear Sky~


I will be sharing some simple ideas for Christmas decorating using items you may already have or that you can find inexpensively. My goal is to inspire readers looking for affordable and easy ways to decorate this Christmas. Your style may be different than mine, but many of the ideas can be altered to suit your taste.

Easy Christmas Idea #4 ~Vintage Sports Equipment


Add some outdoorsy Christmas style to your home by displaying vintage sports equipment with greenery or ribbons. You could use old skiis, ice skates, snowshoes, equestrian helmets, an old fishing vest or creel, or even tennis rackets. Indoors or out, just pick your favourite sports and keep your eyes open at thrift stores, yard sales or dig in the garage or shed for these vintage pieces.

  2. I love your front porch! I have an old pair of wood skiis that I sometimes put out for winter but haven't lately. I guess they got frozen in the ground and stayed way too long after the snow was gone. LOL I am enjoying your decorating ideas. Thanks for sharing them. Pamela

  3. Hi Elizabeth,
    Your front porch looks great! The old skis are a perfect winter sport. A nice place to sit with a cup of hot chocolate, your winter coat and some snow lightly coming down...
    All the Best,
    Christine

  5. So charming! I just ordered some vintage ice skates on Etsy, and can't wait to create a display with them. The fishing vest is such a cute idea too. Thanks for the clever ideas!
    Cheers, Andrea

  6. Hi! Thanks for your visit from Feathered Nest Friday! I love your porch with the vintage skis! I just bought some ice skates at a flea market and have been playing around with ideas on how to display them. I'll check out your other posts as well and I'm following back. Have a nice weekend!

  9. This is a fabulous idea, Elizabeth. It looks wonderful. I have a tiny stoop, it has a white vintage chair on it and I have a pair of white leather ice-skates that I refuse to torture my feet with anymore. I really need ideas on how to use them on my porch. Thanks for the inspiration.
    Hugs, Cindy

  10. I like this idea. I've seen it done using things that fit the season such as ice skates or sleds before. I love the old ski's displayed like you have!
