If you’re like me and can only dream of owning anything Lacroix, then this inspired project should be right up your alley! This very luxe looking velvet belt is actually very simple to make, and you should be able to knock one up in an afternoon.
If you’re putting together a kit of basics for crafting, Sharpies are a must have. The colours are vibrant and they can be used on so many different types of materials. This tutorial is a great example. Can you belive she just ‘doodled’ that pattern?! So pretty! These belts are great to wear over dresses that might be a bit shapeless. If you want to make one but don’t think you’d be able to think up a design, look for a design in a fashion mag or even some scrapbook paper for inspiration.
Braided Belt Tutorial | Sew Mama Sew!
Speaking of belts, how about making your own? This is quite easy to make and great to be able to customise to your size. I find it hard to find cute plus size belts so this is perfect for me. I would probably make this in one colour like black or tan so it will go with more outfits, though I do love this white and tan mix!
Rope Waist Belt | Dana’s Fashion Blog
I just found out about Dana’s Fashion blog and I’m a little giddy from excitement! She has some amazing DIYs - check them out! I will feature a few more of my favourites later. But right now I wanted to show you this awesome belt - perfect for cinching in your flippy summer frocks or for swapping out your normal coat belt to add a bit of interest. This is so easy to make - also, if you don’t have a hot glue gun yet, make sure it’s on your list because once you have one, you will not know how you lived without it!
DIY Draped Chain Belt | Runway DIY
I love the mix of different textures in both fashion and home. This outfit is a great example - a floaty feminine skirt with a ‘tough’ chain belt. But these two mix really well together. Also it’s just really super awesome. So pick your reason to make this belt! Haha!
DIY Door Knocker Belt | Honestly WTF
Now this is a belt! One of the great things about DIY is that you’re almost guaranteed to have an original piece of clothing. Even if someone else made this belt, they might use a different pull or belt. Either way, this is an epic belt!
Rose Belt DIY | Emily Sparks
How cute - mum & daughter matching belts! I like belts like this that you can wear casually or dressy. And making matching ones for the whole family? OK, so maybe teenagers might not appreciate that (though they might if you agree to never wear them at the same time!) I think i’ll have to make one in grey like the one pictured to cinch in my dresses. Tres chic!
Fringe Belt in Cream & Navy | I Heart Norwegian Wood
I Heart Norwegian Wood is one of the first shops I hearted in Etsy back in 2007… wow, 2007! Time flies! Anyway, IHNW is one of the most creative designers I’ve come across and I am so inspired by this belt. There’s no way this would fit me, but I think I could make something similar. Please check out her shop and heart her too if you haven’t already - and if you’re not joined up with Etsy, go do it now!
Vinyl Belt Buckle & Interchangeable Belt | A Lemon Squeezy Home
I’ve always seen piping on items and thought - I would have no idea how to do that. And tutorials seem to make it even harder than it looks. But I really get it now from this tutorial! Easy! What was I freaking out about!? Haha! I don’t think I would bother making the buckle, but you can buy them for like $2 from Spotlight, but different belts for every outfit, easy peasy!
DIY Suede Belt | Martha Stewart
Suede is such a great fabric - no fraying! Which means… no sewing! This is a great belt design, and i love the punched hole border. This would make a great present - easy to make, looks expensive and there’s nothing like a present that someone has made especially for you!
Ruffly Belt | Rachel From Heart Of Light - 100 Layer Cake
I have an upcoming wedding to attend for my beautiful friend Laura and whilst I want to look nice I have limited funds. I have a plain dress but want to add something special and I think this belt will look fantastic! It might even be great as a headband!
Update: haha, look what I found! Rachel has done the tutorial in headband form too!
Felt is an amazing fabric! There are so may uses for it, and the fact that it is so pliable and doesn’t fray makes it perfect for accessories. This lovely belt would look great cinching in a pretty brown dress <3
