Working at a store like M&J Trimming it’s hard not to become completely overcome with creativity! This place is really a DIYer’s dream. That’s why when Carlos saw this amazing green and red canvas ribbon, he knew exactly what to make with it: a Gucci-inspired belt! Learn how to make this stylish belt with just a few items, and in only a few minutes!
What You’ll Need:
2 2.5″ Bamboo Rings
1. For this project we’re using printed ribbon, and lining it with webbing to make it sturdier. The webbing can also be used by itself for a fun solid belt. Line up the webbing and ribbon, and measure how much ribbon you will need by wrapping it around your hips and adding six inches.
2. Once you’ve cut the ribbon and webbing to your desired length, glue them together using a hot glue gun or E-6000. If you’re using a glue gun, work in sections. This way the glue won’t dry before you’ve reached the end of the ribbon!
3. Take the two bamboo rings, and loop the belt through them. Glue the end of the belt down past the rings. There should be a little bit of wiggle room between the two rings.
Extra step: If you want to make a belt loop for your belt, take a piece of that patterned ribbon and glue the two ends to the back of the belt, while making sure to create a loop on the other side. Make sure you can fit your belt through the loop before gluing it down!
