A quick little DIY for those little belts that come with dresses and pants – the ones that last only a few wears? You know the ones, since I love to extend the life of even the smallest items – why not those teeny little toddler belts too. I’m sure this would work great for a thin adult sized belt too.
- First spend a couple moments fixing the belt, I used a glue gun to piece this one back together. There was a few tears and rips.
- Stick the tape to the belt, you can use a thin layer of the glue from the glue gun at the ends to make that area a bit stronger.
- Poke a small hole for the belt knob (what the heck to you call this thing?), and wrap it around the back. If you like go a head and cover the back of the belt with tape too – totally you to you. I would use super thin layers of glue in high stress areas to keep the tape extra secure.
She’s not perfect (the belt, Harlow obviously is), but better then before – and when on you don’t see the teeny tiny details that aren’t totally perfect. Fabric tape does the work, Washi tape is far too thin and wrinkles when curved.
I’m now on the hunt for some plain white or black fabric tape – so I can draw my own designs and create a belt (and basically put it on all the things). Quickest little DIY this side of Monday, what do you think?
