J.Crew Style Belt DIY.

Last week, I saw a belt in the J.Crew store and loved everything but the price tag. So instead of spending
the $52, I made myself one instead. This project can be done for little to no money, depending on what
materials you already have. I spent $20 on the belt and embroidery thread.
I kept the color scheme similar, but mixed it up just a little. Online, they have a blue version if you would
like some more color inspiration!
Now for the how to:
What you need.
Begin by gluing the first color vertically on the back of the belt.
Next, wrap the thread around the belt over the part that you just glued down. When the band of color is
as long as you would like it, glue the end down and cut off the excess. Do the same with the next color.
Continue down the length of the belt. I ordered the colors, and the length of the bands randomly.
Continue down the belt until you reach the stopping point you would like, glue it off, and you’re finished!
