I’m so excited to share the creation for the SK Showcase this week!
This month we have been talking about spending time outdoors, and I know many families include biking on the list of favorite outdoor activities.
Amber of Giver’s Log sent me these pictures of how she created both a reflective handlebar flower and an upcyled handlebar bag. For those whose biking adventures continue through the evening towards dusk, being visible to road traffic is imperative!
For the handlebar flower, Amber’s secret ingredient is retroreflective glass beads:
You can see that she covered the ends of the petal with these beads making the flower highly reflective. This pretty and functional flower can then be attached to handlebars or to your bike bag:
Iron-on reflective tape was the key component of this upcycled handlebar bag:
If you think your family would like to create similar projects, be sure to read Amber’s step-by-step tutorial for the handlebar flower and handlebar bag. Thank you again, Amber, for sharing this with us!
