Intro: How to Make a Duct Tape Belt
This will instruct you on creating a duct tape belt, going hand in hand with How to Make An Altoid Can Belt Buckle.

Step 1: Measure and Tape
What you need for this project:
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!
