Yesterday I shared the exciting news that I finally purchased my dream bike: a pink beach cruiser we shall now refer to as Sally! Beach cruisers are great, especially when they're pink; however, they really serve no purpose without a basket to tote all your treasures around in. Beach cruiser baskets purchased on their own can run from $20 - $50. Cha ching! And they're BORING! I decided to make my own jazzed up basket!
This involved a trip to Michael's craft store. I bought:
-a medium sized wicker basket
-an assortment of flowers to adorn my basket with
Buying a wicker basket (or any basket) on your own at a craft store is a perfect (cheaper) way to dress up your bike. The basket I purchased was $6. I bought the flowers and ribbon on sale for $4. The whole project cost me a total of $10!!!! I super glued the flowers to the basket and will use the ribbon to attach it to my bike! Here's the finished product:
I love it! I can't wait to cruise around with this gem on my new bike!
I am planning on making another basket with different flowers. I am also contemplating adding some rhinestones. Thoughts? Any other ideas on what I could add?
