The folks at Dritz show how you can use fold over elastic and decorative buckles to make cute belts. You’ll need to use the thicker and wider fold over elastic (like you’d use for making baby diapers). The elastic comes in a wide range of colors and fun prints. And you can also find a wide variety of buckle styles that would make cute belts for kids or adults. Go to their blog, Make Something, for a tutorial showing how to do it.
