Back to the Future Hoverboard DIY

Published by Kristen on

To celebrate the future happening today, I decided to create a Hoverboard!

It is made from a bright pink skateboard deck and covered with custom cut pieces of vinyl using my Silhouette. The design is based on this vector PDF that I found: DIY Overboard


I covered the pink parts with felt. The foot stand is made from a round plywood circle painted and then a piece of felt was added. It is attached to the deck through the holes with elastic that was weaved through and stapled to the plywood. The foot strap is a piece of elastic. The bottom of the board is just stick on puck lights.


To have a full look I dressed up like a hoverboard champion and wore this fabulous shirt from Rhett & Link. I also quickly sewed a scrunchie to complete my look.
