Bicycle Decoration Ideas

Cambridge has been an utter delight for sunny autumn days this last month. G and I have made the most of it by taking after work bike rides and making sure Florence is looking pretty. Today I’m sharing some snaps of Florence with her new look and hope they provide some bicycle decoration ideas for you!


For the pom poms I used Stylecraft Special DK yarn (available here) and simply tied them to my basket. I used the nifty Clover Pom-Pom Maker to make the pom poms.


The spokey dokey beads were from Tiger but I spray painted them to suit my colour scheme. Any excuse eh? They are NOISY when the bike is moving slowly so G hears me coming home from work most days!


These ribbon handlebar streamers are a variation of my pattern in the Craft Bomb Your Bike book. This time, I developed the pattern to use an elastic fastener and added some buttons for decoration.


I’m very excited to share the news that the handlebar streamers were made for a new venture I was invited to contribute to. More on this next week, sorry to tease!


Here’s a sneak peek of my photo shoot with Lucinda where I was decorating my bike!Claireabellemakes-Pom-Pom-Bike-Basket
