DIY Fashion: Make Your Own Belt Bracelet

DIY Fashion: Make Your Own Belt Bracelet

Skip the impact of buying new– create your own DIY fashion like this stylish belt bracelet!

Do you have a belt that doesn’t fit anymore? Perhaps it fits, but it’s just not used as often as you’d like. Either way, you can turn it into an awesome belt bracelet that is super cute! I saw this DIY belt bracelet tutorial from Henry Happened and fell in love. I remembered my multi-colored belt that was hiding in the back of my closet (am I the only one who never wears belts?), and decided to transform it into my own belt bracelet.

What You Will Need:

1. An old belt

2. Scissors

3. Recycled felt that coordinates in color with your belt

4. Hot glue/hot glue gun

5. Black permanent marker

How To Do It:

1. Put your belt on your wrist, just like you would put it around your waist. With a permanent marker, mark where you would like your bracelet to end.

2. Cut off the excess part of the belt.

3. If you’re using a normal solid belt, you can simply cut off the end and make a new hole for the belt buckle using a hammer and nail. My belt was braided, so my steps might be a little different than yours. Originally I thought I could burn the ends of the belt together to keep it from fraying, but it didn’t work (and made my kitchen smell bad). I improvised by hot gluing a small piece of felt to the end of the belt like so:

Put the belt back on and it has magically transformed into a bracelet! I love the chunky look of the belt buckle and all of the different colors of the belt. If you have a plain belt, you could sew vintage or handmade buttons on it like this button cuff!  If you have a thinner belt, try wrapping the belt around your wrist multiple times like this DIY leather belt bracelet from By Wilma. There are so many DIY fashion possibilities!
