Spring Scooter

Hi everyone! It’s Melanie and Steffany from Find it, Make it, Love it. Today we’re so excited to be sharing a step by step tutorial for our version of this Enjoy the Ride Scooter: Enjoy the Ride Scooter craft-The Wood Connection (6) We are totally in love with this cute thing! Do you love it? It is just so playful and bright and full of good vibes. This project has a lot of steps but don’t worry– we have it all broken down for you. So let’s get to it!

 

Here’s what you need:

 
 
    • Scooter with block and vinyl
 
 
    • Tiny flowers (ours are from Hobby Lobby)
 
    • Paint, we used: Sea Foam, Straw, Tompte Red, Quaker Gray, Black, White
 
 
 
 

Enjoy the Ride Scooter craft-The Wood Connection (1)Step 1: Paint the scooter body blue (Sea Foam.) Everything except the headlight, tail light, basket, wheels, seat, and handlebars is blue. Feel free to tape parts off as desired. You can see we have the seat taped off here. Also, paint the two fenders blue.

 

Step 2: Trace the front fender above the tire so you know how high to paint black.Enjoy the Ride Scooter craft-The Wood Connection (15)

 

Step 3: Paint the seat, handlebars, and hubcaps gray. Also, paint all 4 sides of the base block gray.

 

Step 4: Paint the basket, the detached basket piece and the top of the base block yellow.

 

Step 5: Paint the tires black.

Step 6: Trace the fender pieces onto the blue paper. Trace the seat onto gray paper. Trace the basket onto yellow paper. The seat is the most tricky to trace because there’s not a detached piece like the others. Lay the scooter on the paper and just to do your best tracing the seat.

 

Step 7: As long as the paint is dry at this point, place the vinyl on the front of the block. Enjoy the Ride Scooter craft-The Wood Connection (13)

 

Step 8: Use wood glue to attach the paper pieces to the fenders, and seat.Enjoy the Ride Scooter craft-The Wood Connection (12)

 

Step 9: Paint the headlight, the flower part of the basket, and the wheels white. The wheels are the larger circles. We know there’s lots of names and parts to the tires-haha! So the tires (attached to the scooter) are black, the wheels (the larger wood circles) are white, and the hubcaps (the smaller wood circles are gray.)
