Intro: Making Flowers Actually Stick to Basket
I have prettified my bikes basket, however the flowers keep falling off. I decided to try sugru for this, since it suppose to glue things, and also have more mass than glue usually have, and very important: easier to work with.
I used one small pack of sugru for this.
I have used the basket after this repair for a month, and had no more trouble. The Sockets are firm, even if i have had heavy groceries bump into them.
Step 1: Remove Old Glue
Before i started reattaching the flower to my basket i removed old pieces of glue, to make sure it did not interfere with the sugru. Also the glue i had used looked bad, so i didn't want to show it of anymore.
I used my fingernails and some hooks and picking tools i have.
Now, it is time to open up the pack of sugru of your favoritte colour. I choose yellow.
On the picture you can see the stems of the flowers. You can also see how little surface it is to glue with.
I mold a socket around the stem, and make sure it is pressuret against the basket som the flower don't, hang or move.
I also made sure that the socket i made is rounded so that i won't snag on things i put in the basket , clothes or similar.
Step 3: The Result
Four yellow sockets are ready to be left to harden. After 24 h i could use my basket again. Now pretty again, and without the flowers falling off all the time.
