A fiddly little Christmas project for the cyclist in your life.


  • 10 Old bike chain lengths
  • Super glue
  • Glitter spray paint
  • Coloured cord or ribbon to hang


  1. Glue the bike chain in place with super glue (be careful as I think I got more on my fingers and surrounds than the bike chain. Allow to dry.
  2. Spray with glitter paint on one side and allow to dry before spraying the other side. Follow the directions on the spray pain for drying time. I allowed it to dry overnight.
  3. Tie the ribbon and cord through one end and it's ready to give as a gift or hang from your tree.


These are perfect gifts for cycling friends or relatives
