what you need:
- Printable bike flag
- Sticker paper
- Wooden dowel (or empty bike flag pole)
- Ribbon and string in various colors
Download and print out the front and back sides of the rainbow bike flag onto your sticker paper. Cut out your flags with your scissors, keeping them as straight as possible.
Stick the front side of the flag to the end of the wooden dowel. The front is the side that says “pedal to the metal”.
Cut some ribbon and string and stick it to the inside of the flag. Since the flag is printed on sticker paper, the ribbons and strings should stick right on.
Then, carefully stick the back side of your rainbow flag to the front side of your flag. This will secure your ribbons and strings to your bike flag pole. Attach your bike flag to your bike and you’re done!
Super fun, right? Who doesn’t love decorating their bike with some fun flair for the summer! Happy crafting!
