Picture of Stuff You Need

plasti dip spray (optional)

Step 2: Assemble

Picture of Assemble

I wanted the vase thingie to have a black color, so I coated it in plasti dip spray. Here is the painted thing after one coat.

after it dries, rough one side up a bit with the file so the hot melt will stick.

glue the strips of velcro to the roughed up side.

Turns out the flower makes the vase top heavy, so you really need two velcro strips.

Step 3: Now Your Bike Looks Like One of Those New Vw Bugs
