Mohawk motorcycle helmets are popular accessories for motorcycle hobbyists who like to show off a splash of color. Making your own mohawk helmet at home proves to be an achievable endeavor for even the novice craft hobbyist and provides you with an attractive helmet accessory. Regardless of the colors you choose, making your mohawk motorcycle helmet allows you to be creative while practicing proper motorcycle safety.
Squeeze a line of hot glue down the center of the backside of one of the Velcro strips. The backside is the side that doesn't have the adhesive fibers on it.
Adhere the strip to the center top of the motorcycle helmet.
Squeeze a line of glue down the center of the back of the other strip of Velcro.
Adhere it to a 10-inch length of plastic fringe border. Make sure to choose the stiffest grade of plastic fringe you can find, so that the mohawk stands upright.
Attach the sticky bottom of the plastic fringe piece you just glued to the surface of the Velcro strip that is glued to the helmet. The hooks of the Velcro interlock, keeping the mohawk in place on the helmet.
You can glue the plastic fringe strip to the helmet for a permanent touch.
Plastic fringe roll can be found in garden supply and party supply shops.
