Helmet Mohawk

Last spring, I saw this post on Make about making helmet mohawks. Today, Jackson and I finally got around to turning his bike helmet into a mohawk.

We took a trip to Hobby Lobby, in search of faux fur. The only kind they had was more felty than furry. It wouldn’t stand up enough to evoke a mohawk on Jackson’s helmet. So we browsed the trim aisle and found some funky trim that would work. Jackson picked his favorite color, we had a yard cut and headed home to find my glue gun.

It was very easy to apply the trim to the helmet. I just piped a row of hot glue, an inch at a time, and stuck the trim to it. Jackson was BEYOND excited to have a helmet mohawk, and begged to go outside and take a spin on his bike to try it out._MDS7446
