How To: Make a DIY R2D2 Scooter or Bike Helmet

The simple, giant Tic-Tac with arms shape of everyone’s favorite astromech droid, R2D2, is ripe for translating the bleepblooper’s visage onto all sorts of similarly shaped objects, such as desk lamps, pumpkins, and mailboxes.

But, my favorite, by far, is this clever (and safe!) R2D2 treatment of a scooter helmet. Like the best craft projects, it looks way more complicated than it is: some clever taping and spraypaint, and just a single addition of PVC pipe. Genius, right?

No fancy stencils or CNC machines – just some tape and paint. Love it.
