For this Christmas, my girl wished to get an electric scooter. First, she wanted to get one of the new self-balancing scooters, but being 8 years old I felt she was way too young to ride around on something like that. And now I am more than happy that we took that decision and didn’t get one since they are everywhere on the news and from what I read on LAtimes.com most stores have taken them off the shelves due to safety being an issue. So I am very happy we went with a more old-school approach. We bought him a razor scooter since those seemed to be the most effective and kid-friendly products at this point and the price tag was a relief for our wallets also. Compared to the self-balancing scooter this razor scooter cost about 250$ less if not even more and saving some money is always welcome. Since safety was our number one concern we went ahead and read some electric scooter reviews and went through them all and found out that Razor is a well-known brand for this type of device which was comforting enough for us to pull the plug.
But now when she’s had it for a few months we wanted to make it a little more special, it has gotten a few marks and scratches which we felt ruined the whole design and even out of the box it wasn’t that pretty and our girl started to ask me for ideas on what we could do with it. I had a bag of rhinestones lying around from an older project which haven’t come to use yet so I thought why not bedazzle the scooter. Here as always I’ll give you the walk-through on how to bedazzle your own scooter and get the same result as we did. The picture might not be the most beautifully taken picture I’ve taken but just so you know I didn’t either it was my little girl who took it herself.
How-To bedazzle your own electric/kick scooter
First, Start by getting your hands on 1 lbs+ of rhinestones or whichever stone you want, you could easily go with some color and make nice stripes etc but we just had the clear rhinestones lying around so we went with those.
You might have to peel of a few stickers here and there to help them attach properly to the scooter.
I would suggest getting some superglue and start at the handlebar and work your way downwards. Start by putting some glue on a rhinestone and apply them one after the other, just make sure you set them nice and tight so there are no big spaces and try to keep them on a straight line for a pristine finish.
Just keep on gluing the rhinestones to your scooter until you’ve covered the most part of the electric scooter, don’t attach any to the standing plate as this will probably make you unbalanced and uncomfortable while riding, it might make it a bit slippery also so be cautious.
After you’re done you have your new bedazzled DIY electric scooter design. Congratulations to us and I hope you’re as happy as we were when we got done. It felt like it took forever to glue them all onto the scooter. About 1-2 hours of work and you are done.
