Bern-polka-dot-helmet

In anticipation of my new bike last month, I was on a wild goose chase for a cute helmet {safety first!}. I came across this one by Ruby which was way out of my price range and for motorcycle {not bicycle} use. But I soon became obsessed with finding a black and white polka-dotted helmet where there were none to be found. So, I decided to make my own. Keep in mind, although I'm a designer, I am not a crafty DIY person. But this little project was so easy and turned out just as I had envisioned.

First, I chose a black matte Bern muse helmet for it's simplicity and slightly equestrian brim style {it was even on sale!}. Then, I ordered dot decals in white choosing the 1-1/2" size to get the larger polka dot scale I wanted. Next, I simply applied the dots starting at the base and working my way up in alternating rows. Since the helmet is curved, don't rush when applying and be sure to firmly smooth out the air bubbles before the entire dot is secure. And voila!
