DIY front bike basket

I chanced upon this bike basket locked up on Newbury Street. It is an ordinary oval basket, probably purchased for a dollar or two at a craft shop.

She (and I'm going to assume this was a girl's bike based on a lot of clues) then used yarn and feathers to decorate, and attached the whole thing with zip ties. It would be hard to cut them, and the basket isn't valuable enough to steal, so in the end she got an inexpensive and very practical basket.

Ooh! That's a good idea! I just might have to try and see if this will work/look pretty on my bike. Thanks for the inspiration!
