Introduction: How to Make Art From Bike Wheel

This Instructable will teach you how to make a flower from a bike wheel! this is my first Instructable so dont judge me. NOTE the bike wheel will be dysfunctional if done like i do.

Step 1: What You Need

1 a bike wheel

2 scissors

3 duct tape

4 spoke adjuster

Step 2: First Step.

take the spoke adjuster and un-screw 3 one closest to each other in the picture below
KEEP THE LITTLE NUBS!!!

Step 3: Hooking It Up

now you take the middle spoke and put it through the hole directly across from it . you will have to take a spoke out to do so. tighten it like the others but this one will be a bit looser.
then fold towards the middle and duct tape at the top. look at the pictures if you have a doubt.





repeat until all spokes are like so.

Step 4: Your Done!

now your done go show off to your friends!!!!

How do you bend the spokes to make them look like a flower ?

Love this idea. I would love to see any other idea's you have with bike wheels.

I feel like this would sacrifice a lot of the durability of the wheel.

well pretty much the point of doing this is to make art not something that really rides its turning junk into something cool .....

Yes most of us realise the point of this. Put some black ink on it, or foil it and then put ink, make it look awesome. It looks incomplete right now.
