Step 1: Measure and Tape

What you need for this project:
~Duct tape
~Belt Buckle

First off, measure your waist. You want to make the belt as accurate as possibly so you don't have too much extra slack. Also measure your belt loops to see how wide to make the belt.

Get your duct tape and draw out a long piece. Lightly grasp close to the midpoint of the piece and fold one half on top of the other. It takes practice to get good at this, so you might have trouble the first few tries. See the picture below for a visual. Squeeze out all of the bubbles in the tape and continue on until you have enough to fit around your waist.

Step 2: Cut & Connect

Mark the width of the belt loops on the strips of duct tape made in step 1. Using a ruler, make a line by extending the mark. Cut along the mark, and repeat for each piece. You can also just tear the duct tape from the first mark, which is much more convenient.

After this, you want to conjoin the separate strips into one with small strips of duct tape.

Step 3: Pick Your Poison.....err...buckle

Finally, you have a choice of buckles for the belt. You can harvest a regular one (left in the pic) or use anything else that works for you. I used the buckle on the right, which fell off of my backpack.

So, belt up and head out!
Well, this will go great with my duct tape wallet, purse and shoes.

modio is referring to the t-shirt I'm wearing in the picture. The symbol shown is exactly what he said, an adapter so 45 records can play on a 33 spindle. Hope that cleared it up!
