Make it Monday: cycling head


Posted 17th Jul 2017

If you're a fan of cycling, why not bring your hobby indoors by upcycling an old bike into super-cool accessories? You could use a piece of old tyre to make earrings, a headlight to create a desk lamp, or alternatively, how about a cycling head on the wall? Forget those animal heads and go for a hip new look!

1 Have you got an old or broken bicycle lying around? Unscrew the handlebars and saddle.

2 Combine the handlebars with the saddle, or use the handlebars on their own to create a pair of animal horns.

3 Print the Quick-Step template, downloadable here.

4 Use a hand saw to cut the shape out of the wood or laminate.

5 Place the handlebars on the floorboard in the shape of animal horns and add the saddle for the complete look.

6 Attach the handlebars and saddle securely with cable ties.

7 Hang it on the wall and prepare to stun people with your cool new look!
