Last week I posted a super simple DIY on how to resurrect a sad little toddler belt , and make it something even better. This week, another super duper simple DIY on how to make a belt for your toddler – this one will take you…2 minutes.
- mom’s old belt. or a new under $5 one, without jazzy top stitching (like this one)
- glue gun
- Place the belt around the little ones waist, or lay it down beside one of thier old belts. Take your trusty scissor and cut the belt to fit the right size. Cut the end on a fancy angle or rounded edge, or just poker straight.
- Take your handy glue gun and run a thin bead along the new cut edge. I waited a couple moments and used my finger to smooth out the glue. This will prevent the edge from getting all worn and torn from use.
- I used a corkscrew to drill new holes to fit, or if you want to get all fancy take it to the cobbler they usually have a leather punch (even though this is not even in the leather family).
Done and it’s sure it cute! I’m sure you have a few unused skinny belts in your closet that could be better used for a little person? Belts that are simply faux leather, like this one work best – they are easiest to just chop and seal with glue. Also, it’s a pretty great way to make a belt for the boys too!
