We've pulled together some of our favorite -- and easiest -- handmade belt projects, including braided belts and grosgrain ribbon ones.
Add a luxurious touch to any winter outfit with a belt made of velvet ribbon. Cut 2 1/2 yards of natural-fiber velvet ribbon. Slip two D rings slightly wider than the ribbon onto one end, and fold both ends of the ribbon in toward the midpoint, fuzzy side out, keeping the D rings at one folded end. Remove backing from a 1 1/4-yard piece of iron-on fuse tape, and sandwich it between the layers; place scrap velvet face down on top, and iron on the cotton setting to fuse the layers.
