We started brainstorming, and eventually came up with a cardboard, wire mesh and duct tape design that we liked.
This is my second instructable, but my FIRST father/daughter instructable. Thanks for checking it out. I appreciate any comments, and will do my best to answer any questions.
BTW, my daughter made my avatar :)
Step 1: Gather Tools & Materials
Mallet or Hammer
Regular Duct Tape
Decorative Duct Tape
Step 2: Shape The Box & Apply 1st Layer of Tape
Cut off any excess cardboard. We left a portion of the lid on so we'd have a way to attach to the bike handle bars.
Wrap the entire box with regular duct tape. It won't be weather proof, but it should be pretty weather-resistant.
Step 3: Measure & Cut the Wire Mesh
Bend the mesh to wrap around the exterior of the box. Using a mallet and the straight edge of any hard work surface, you'll need to make two bends.
