Custom Bike Spoke Decals

One of the most fun and easy ways you can customize your bicycle is to create decals for your spokes. Known as “spoke beads,” these decals come in all shapes, colors, and sizes. Today, we’re going to show you how to Doodle your own. Looking for more ways to customize your bike? Check out our blog post for project ideas you can work on today.  We can’t wait to see what you come up with! When you’re finished with your spoke beads, share them @3Doodler #3Doodler #WhatWillYouCreate.

1 Collect your materials

We’ll be creating decorations for your real-life bicycle, so make sure that it is all tuned up and parked nearby before you begin. You’ll also need your 3Doodler pen and plastics, as well as your DoodlePad to help you create the images we’ve included on our free stencil.

2 Doodle your decals

Using your 3D pen and DoodlePad, trace the illustrations included on your bike spoke stencil - or create your own Doodles!

Choose colors that complement the colors of your bicycle!

3 Press the decals to your spokes.

When the images on the stencil have hardened, gently peel them off of the DoodlePad. Next Doodle some plastic on the back of the decoration and stick them directly to the spokes on your bicycle. Space them out, or put them near each other -- the design is up to you!

4 Think outside the stencil!

Once you get the hang of creating 3D beads for your spokes, draw some designs freehand. Doodle decals that resonate with you, and stick them to your spokes as you did in step 3. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Lightning bolt
Emoji faces
Superhero badges
