    Genius, Alex! Love these… And never mind the kids, I’m thinking a bling combination of neon pink and silver for my own genteel ladies’ shopper; Something to raise eyebrows when I go to the store…

    Kate read my mind. Also, those will be good for when I’m ready for a walker. I plan to be one of those old ladies who don’t know the time for leopard pants is past…

    As always, adorable and creative. And easy!

    This is fantastic! I love the golf-tee hack – how clever (and we have a living tonne of these all over the house). Now I just have to pick our some fabulous ribbon. I’m sure Lila would prefer Hello Kitty… and I’d want something turquoise. πŸ˜‰

    Alex… this is so smart! And bonus points for doing something original that hasn’t been done a gazillion times on Pinterest. I love the girls could customize them and even change them out when they get dirty or just tired of the colors they picked. Awesome project!!

    Amazing! I don’t have a kiddo old enough to ride a bike, so I’m making these for my own. πŸ™‚

    Very cute! I got Ruby’s bike at Value Village- its girly (but from 1990-and cost $3) could use a new splash of glam. Great idea!!

    You just saved my butt. I just bought my 4yo daughter a scooter for her birthday and ripped the tassel off of one handle.
    It’s attached differently. Razor attaches their streamers with a bungee cord that threads through the handle. I think if I cut off a piece of dowel and put an eyescrew in both ends, it will work.

    This is an awesome idea and like you I am tasked with what to do with the kids on every holiday. But I would rather have the projects with kids over COOKING any day! I am organizing a bike parade for my police department and wanted to decorate bikes, but thought it would be far to costly as well as tedious. This will be neither, but will be a HUGE hit for the kids while mm and dad get the kiddos registered. So thanks for this and keep up the good work.

I love your comments!
