Some of my favorite thrift store items are belts. They can be amazing in detail and just perfect as it is, or they can be a base for an amazing DIY project. Especially when the ends (where the holes are) are worn out or maybe even broken. This bracelet is made with such a broken belt. A really great recycling project!

How to make a DIY recycled belt bracelet

DIY - Bracelet from a recycled belt1. Wrap the belt around your wrist and decide where the hole should be. Push the pen in the leather to leave an imprint. Make a hole with your punch at the imprint and cut off the belt at the desired length.

2. Make three holes in de middle of the belt 4/5 inch apart. You really need these holes. I thought that I could just push the needle trough the leather, but it proved to get a messy result.

3. Embroider star shaped figures on your belt with your embroidery floss. The holes you just made should be the center of the stars.DIY - Bracelet from a recycled belt

4. Place studs between the stars. I bought mine here on Ebay.

And your bracelet is finished! You can combine it with other bracelets or wear it alone. You could make this belt bracelet in many variations and I’m really curious about your creations!
