Duct Tape Belt

Introduction: Duct Tape Belt

I see so many duct tape belts that are very complicated to make  and I finally decided to make my own. And it's great if the buckle comes off of a belt you don't use anymore

Step 1: Gathering Materials


What you'll need for this


Step 2: Make the Belt

Now take 2 strips of tape and make sure they'll be long enough for a belt. (I usually eyeball this but you may want to measure where you'll have the belt at and add about 10 inches)
Now keep adding tape to make it thicker. I did this about 4 or 5 times.

Step 3: Add Buckle


Take the belt and cut off the buckle. Then take the tape belt and cut a triangle this will make it easier to put the buckle on it. Now slip on the buckle and stop at the "bottom" of the triangle. Fold the tip of the triangle down and tape it so that the buckle will stay. 

Step 4: Make and Add the Loop

Cut off a small strip of tape and fold it in half. Now add three more layers to it. Now take the bottom and top and tape it underneath the belt. This is your loop

Step 5: Cut Holes and Enjoy!

Cut holes in the belt where you'll put the buckle into. Try it on and make sure it's going to fit and there will be a hole for the buckle where you can put it in while wearing it. Now enjoy it cause you worked hard on that

    I like the simplicity. Good job!

    The photos were a bit too dark, the first one too blurry. That tends to make rapid skimmers shy away from looking closely at your 'ible, but otherwise, good post!

    Do some more!
