12 Days of Reuse, Bike Chain Bracelet

upcycled craft, upcycled bike parts

Know any bicyclists or recyclists? We’ll, I have just the gift to give to them. Bike Chain Bracelets!

The Bike Peddler was kind enough to donate a worn out chain. And it’s not just chains that they donate. Bike Peddler’s Eric Vickers along with fabulous Becky Willhite partnered with the Assistance League Auxiliary to refurbish donated bikes for children transitioning out of foster care. They accept donations throughout the year, so if you have a bike to donate, please drop it by the Bike Peddler at 174 Commercial St. NE, Salem. I absolutely love their work, their service to the community, and of course their DIY spirit.

In their honor, I’ve created two bike-related videos for the 12 Days of Reuse (come back to see the other one). And with a Becky as my inspiration, I’ll soon post about creating a bike tire belt. There are so many resources, and so many ideas, I look forward to starting the Creative Reuse Center in Salem so I can share them with you. To support more videos such as these, as well as our Creative Reuse Center, please make sure to donate to our non-profit! http://www.indiegogo.com/DIYstudio/x/567195
