I was spending hours scouring my usual blogs when I came across a tutorial on how to make super easy belts on Rachel's website.
So I thought these would make the perfect gift for my little girl to open at christmas, although I will probably give her one today. I know, not too exciting, but it is a very tight christmas this year, and she really gets excited about little things like these!
All you need is ribbon, one inch metal D rings and a sewing machine. Walmart actually sells a black plastic click buckle that would work perfect for a boy, I might try one of them next, but I don't know what the price of them is. I am telling you the hardest part of this whole project is getting out the sewing machine!
This is a 5 minute project, and super cheap. Our Walmart carries a 4 pack of the D rings for 78 cents. A roll of 9 yards of ribbon was $1.97. I can make 4 belts from a roll of ribbon so I would need 2 packs of D rings. I didn't count the cost of the thread cause I always have that around. So making four belts at those price would make each belt cost about 88 cents. I don't know anywhere I could get a belt for that price! I found some of these for sale on a website for $12. a piece for a toddler. They also make them for adults so I might try my hand at that. They would look cute with a Christmas ribbon. If you need a tutorial, Rachel's is perfect so I am not even going to go there!
