How to decorate stroller? lights?

A few years ago I saw a post on the Disboards about decorating strollers. I think one had some led lights...it was way cool.

I am not exactly good at this type of thing. How exactly would I go about doing this? where do I buy the stuff? How do I attach it?

Any ideas are greatly appreciated!

Decorate strollers? I've never heard of this. The most my strollers ever get are Mickey stickers all over them!!

I'm thinking about doing this for our next trip, too. You can get battery operated light sets at Michael's, Target, WalMart or places like RiteAid, CVS, etc. You can attach them with velcro strips made for keeping cables together. I've found these at Dollar Tree. I'm also thinking you could use binder clips to attach them to the canopy.

I would love to see pictures of what others have done.

You can decorate your stroller look like a miniature parade float your breast cancer walk. All the pink to help make their case. If you do this walk in memory of a loved one, it would be a very emotional one or two photos of her in your stroller. You can also print his name balloons attached to the stroller. Using a different bra sizes, decorative wreaths to define the many women who suffer from this disease.

We did this with our strollers to be FESTIVE and so we could find out 2 strollers easily in the sea of strollers that is Disney!

I took foil Christmas colored curling ribbon and tied it to the handles of our strollers with a laminated name tag with our name/resort/cell#. We were there for MVMCP and lots of strollers were decorated. It was fun!

It was great to be able to spot our stroller when we got off a ride, as CM's constantly move them. Also, we lost our 5 year old briefly after getting off Expedition Everest and he "saw" our stroller and went and sat in it to wait for us.Not sure this was his best move, if we hadn't happened to see him there but it worked out.

We decorated out stroller to make it easy to find in stroller parking. I used embroidered Jolee's stickers from Michaels, bandanas and ribbon.

I got my DW to pick up some simple foil pinwheels to attatch to the side of the stroller, and she found very cheap Disney ones. Hopefully this will make ours stand out, although I've never really had an issue finding our stroller yet.
