Belts can be used in so many fun and frugal upcycle projects!
12 Creative Ways To Decorate With Belts
- They don’t have to match. Most of the projects don’t require a bunch of belts that all match. Different textures, materials, and shades of colors make the projects look better.
- The belts don’t have to be leather. Some of these projects don’t use all leather belts and I love the way they turned out. The different textures give it some eye appeal and allow you to complete the projects with what you have!
- They don’t have to be in the best shape! I love that the belts don’t have to be in the best shape to reuse them in these crafts. This gives new life to something that may have been too worn out to wear anymore!
