DIY Rope Belt

DIY Rope Belt

I have a special event tonight and wanted a spring belt for my dress but couldn’t really find what I wanted, so I decided to make one!  I had seen the tutorials for rope bracelets so I used that as a base.  I love how delicate the rope is and the nice shine it has.  Will post the full outfit for Frugal Fashion Friday.
