There are many seasons and celebrations that call for a knee scooter decorating-intervention, so today we bring you Pimp My Knee Walker: The Holiday Edition.
Pimp My Knee Walker Series
We wrote our first Pimp My Knee Walker article seven years ago. We showed some wonderful ways people decorated their knee walkers. Now it's time to bring it back and showcase how some of our amazing customers have added some jingle and decked out their knee walkers for the holiday season.
Mental health is just as important during recovery as your physical health, which is why we encourage people to take care of their mental health. Just because your recovering and not at your best, doesn't mean you can't have some fun, and spread some holiday joy! This will help you to feel less stressed about the inconvenience of an injury, and able to deal with any inconveniences life may sleigh at you during your recovery.

Our Turn To Decorate a Knee Scooter
Through the years, we've loved seeing how our customers have decorated their knee scooters according to the seasons.
But we have a confession to make.
We have never really decorated one of our own scooters ourselves.
At Rent a Knee Walker, Christmas-time always puts us in a very Santa-mental mood. We love decorating our office with as many lights and trees as we can. This year, we asked our most creative elfs to sleigh up one of our Swivelmate Knee Walker's
There are countless ways to add some holiday cheer to a knee scooter.
We had a hard time deciding on one.
So here's how we decorate our knee scooter for the holidays:
We know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen
Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen
But we can recall
The most famous reindeer of all.
The materials we purchased are the following:
First a Nose
You can use a piece of duck tape and roll it to double tape the nose to the knee scooter basket. We decided to make it extra secure and decided to secure the nose into the basket with a wire (we recommend just using duct tape, it's a lot easier). We poked two holes behind the nose, ran the wire through, and tied the wire onto the basket.
And if you ever saw it, you would even say it glows:
Since the antlers are mean to hang from a car window, we used scissors to cut out the plastic that sticks out. Using the black twist ties, we secured the antlers to the handles. Double check that they do not get in the way of engaging the brakes fully.
Grab a piece of white paper and draw out the white part of the eyes. When you are happy with the shape, cut it out and use this piece to trace the second eye. This will make them both the same shape. Once you have the paper cut-outs, you can use paper plates add more support to the eyes.
Simply trace the paper cut-outs onto the paper plates. Once you are done, you can use glue or use transparent tape to hold both pieces together.
Finally, draw the pupils on black construction paper. Once done, cut them out and glue to tape them onto the white circles.
We attached the assembled eyes using tape onto the two brake cables that hang near the steering column. Depending on your model, find the best place to place and tape the eyes securely.
Finally, for the tail, cut out the elastic band. Use a piece of duck tape, fold it and double tape it onto the back of the knee rest.
Oh deer, it's ready to rein!
