We all have a few belts laying around that either just don't fit or are wore out or just not fashionable anymore. I had two such belts rattling around in my closet.
I decided rather than put them in the Salvation army donation pile I would upcycle them in to something else I could wear. So with a little of this scrap fabric leftover from last weeks bedroom pillows...
I created this bracelet..
With just a strip fabric about 1" wide and a snap to secure in the back and my bracelet was done in about 5 minutes. I clean up the buckle with a little silver polish and a bit of scrubbing and it shined like new.
Then combined it with my rhinestone and telephone wire bracelet for a more interesting look.
Looks great with my Telephone Wire and zipper bracelet too!
Next I cover the other buckle with Fabric and attached a felt strap.
Combined with other bracelets and I have some funky arm candy.
So easy and quick that I could have a whole new set of bracelets if I had a few more belts.. I wonder if my husband has some he doesn't use?
