So Alexandria Sardinia, aka cinnamontwisties on Instructables, decided to take her daughter’s Little Tykes Cozy Coupe to the next level. Between finding a coupe on Craigslist for cheap and some craft supplies, the toddler momma took a few days to transform the basic red car into a pink and black crime-fighting machine for her “Boo.” Complete with custom license plate and plush hot pink seating. Here’s how she did it:
We found a cheap “Cozy Coupe” on craigslist and spent a whopping $10 on it. From there, with a little graffiti spray paint from my store (art store, Jerry’s Artarama) grafix paper for the details, fabric and gemstones from JoAnn Fabrics we were set. This was an easy Saturday project that cost no more than $20 total. Of course the cost varies on how much you spend on the car. We got lucky and for everything else I had coupons! Stinker now insists on eating her lunch in her batmobile while watching TV.
Harrison has one of these coups and it has been one of his favorite toys for the longest time. His is showing a little wear and tear, so maybe it’s time for me to pimp his ride? Hmm, I wonder if I can make it into Chuck the Truck or Thomas the Train…?
Keep your eyes peeled for Alexandria – apparently she’s working on a Fresh Beat Band version for a family member.
What would you change your toddler’s Cozy Coupe into?
