Recycle a belt 3 ways
Got any belts you don’t wear anymore but might be nice as something else? I’ve got 3 projects we can do that are super fast and super easy.
I’ll show you how to make a hair pin, a bracelet and a headband. Just as practical as a belt, right?
For the hair pin, just cut of the end of the belt with all the holes. Trim the ends into a nice curve. Cut down a dowel or chop stick and sharpen the ends into a dull point so it’ll fit into the holes. Done!
For the bracelet, cut off another piece of belt to fit around your wrist. Add some jewelry clamps, jump rings and a clasp and ta-da! A bracelet!
If you’ve got enough left of your belt, cut of a section long enough to cover the top of your head to behind your ears. Then sew on some elastic to both ends.
You just turned 1 into 3! Yay!
