A bike fit for a Parade

We spent the evening at a Campsite called Indian Acres in Thronburg, Va.  Chris's mom has land and a camper out there and they were doing the fireworks and 4th of July celebration there last night.  We stayed at the camper most of the night.  We walked out to the powerlines and watched an amazing array of fireworks far from the crowd ;)

While we were waiting on the firworks we decorated Christopher Jr's bike for the 4th of July Parade that will take place on the 4th lol.

Here' what you will need:
A Bike ;)
Streamers in Red White & Blue {of course right}
2 Toilet Paper Rolls
Red Paperclips
Foam Stars
Hot Glue Gun

Stream the streamers through the spokes on the bike and tape ends off

~Take the Toilet paper rolls and 1 strand of all 3 colors
overlay them and wrap them around the roll.

~Glue your foam stars to your paperclips
{we bought ours all ready done from michaels}

~Clip streamers into place on the toilet paper rolls
{see pic, I am terrible at explaining things}

~Slide on handlebars

~Wrap metal frame with streamers and tape off ends

~Glue Foam Stars on 'headlight' reflector & handlebar frame

~Take pics of the finished creation
~Put it away somewhere safe until it's time for the parade ;)

That's it.
Happy 4th of July
