DIY Bike Basket

Francois et Moi

The weather is warming up which means bike season is upon us! If like me, you like to cruise around town a la bike, then check out this pretty (yet purposeful!) bike basket project and cart home your farmer’s market bounty in style this summer!


  • For the Basket:
  • Oval or rectangle shaped basket. I used the Easter basket I had on hand from this year, but thrift stores usually have tons this time of year.
  • Painter’s tape
  • Outdoor craft paint
  • Paint brush
  • For the Buckle Straps:
  • A scrap of faux leather or leather at least 8.5″ long.
  • Two – 1/2″ buckles
  • Rotary cutter
  • Ruler
  • Pen
  • 1/8″ hole punch
  • Waxed thread
  • Sewing needle
