Who doesn’t love a vintage bike with an adorable basket on the front?! We always have a few vintage bikes up at the lake and I thought it would be a fun project to try and whip up a little basket of my own while I was up there last week!
What you need:
-Basket (I got mine for the dollar store.)
-Hot glue gun
-String or leather
How to make it:
-Pull leaves and head of flowers off of the stems and arrange them out how you will want them on the front of the basket.
-Hot glue them in place on the basket.
-Loop string or leather cord through each side of the basket and tie securely around the base of the handle bars on your bike.
Easy breezy! I made two because they were so fun and quick!
These small baskets from the dollar store were perfect for this project and they easily carried my candy home from the Snack Shop, my goggles and snorkel down to the water, and bouquets of flowers home from the field. If you have heavier things that you would be carrying, I would recommend buying a larger, stronger basket and attaching a metal bracket for better support.
Go out and spruce up your bike!
