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.
STEP 1: Materials
Rope, leather, button, rivets
Hammer, hole punch and rotary cutter
STEP 3: Cut rope in half and make first loop
*Make sure you put tape around the ends so it doesn’t unravel.
STEP 4: Loop the other half underneath and over.
STEP 6: Tighten Knot
STEP 7: Measure the length you require, I then cut off the excess rope.
STEP 8: Cut leather pieces for the back using a template you create. (I am making this up as I go!)
STEP 9: Hot glue the rope pieces at the end of the leather and create holes for the rivets.
Rivets: 30 cents
Button: 20 cents
Rope Belt Cost: $2.50
