I have decorated my bicycle basket before (see DIY Bike Basket Bunting), but felt it needed an overhaul for the Spring (when it eventually arrives). So today I’m sharing my easy tutorial for a DIY Pom Pom Bike Basket.
You will need:
- A selection of yarns (I used acrylic)
- A pom pom maker
- A bicycle basket!
I used the Clover Pom Pom Maker and this You Tube tutorial – they really are super simple and quite therapeutic to make. You can always use the original pom pom making method here if you don’t want to spend money on craft gadgets.
Half way through my pom pom making, a helper arrived with a naughty look on her face. She took a liking to the red yarn, promptly unraveled it and innocently sat next to it.
Kitty says no pom pom makey.
Anyway, back to the DIY! Once all your pom poms are made up, use the string or yarn you tied them up with to attach to the bicycle basket in a random fashion. G and I thought the colourful poms on my basket looked like buttons on a clown costume.
I used a large pom pom maker but you could just as easily make mini pom poms or lots and lots more to completely cover the basket.
What do you think? Shall I add more or any different colours? I can’t help but feel it needs an orange pom pom for some reason.
