Ice skating ornaments
The most frequent pieces of ice skating Christmas decor are the tree ornaments. You can find different shapes and texture.
And thanks to the print-on-demand website out there, you can have many different designs from cute kids skating, to vintage drawings and modern design.
Let's start with some of my own designs in a modern style. Some of them can be personalized with the name of the skater.
Neutral ice skating Christmas ornaments
For something simple, neutral, you can find ornaments with ice skates.
Female skater ornaments
If your little girl or teenage girl is a figure skater, she would surely enjoy these ornaments with the silhouettes of skaters in various attitudes: spread eagle, arabesque, Biellmann spin... For some you can add the first name of the skater or any other text you want.
Male skater ornaments
Male figure skaters are often left out by creators. I did not. Below is my collection with silhouettes of boy figure skaters on the ornaments (spread eagle or sitting spin).
