Belts into Bracelets

Welcome back friends, guess what I have been up too? Repurposing belts into bracelets, that's what. And....I'm loving it! So fun. They are quite simple but I think they are great. 
Lets begin, shall we....

This is the second one I made, for my daughter.

Several wraps of the belt and added a chain to finish it off.

Left the holes in it and she can always add charms if she wants.

Added a big HUGE clasp to it. Hopefully easier to get it on then those tine ones, lol.

All wrapped up and ready to go.

Added her initial to make it a little blingyier, lol. Not a word but I like it!

Here is the 3rd belt bracelet I made. Love this one!!

Found this at hobby lobby and loved it.

My daughter wanted this one too, lol. Even though she is not a rebel but I do love the rustic quality mixed with the fake pearl.

I'm not done yet friends. I have been working on getting these done and on my Etsy store if my daughter doesn't want them all, lol.

This one is mine. Made it into a charm bracelet. Don't you love it!!
It has a watermelon because that is what we grow here in Hermiston. The dog bone is from my
favorite dog that passed a few years ago and everything else on here has some kind of meaning.

OK, next I worked on this.

Wraps around the arm twice. Left the holes in it in case charms are wanted.

Add a cute little charm.

I love this one. It's a greyish color and the design is so pretty! I used this one for my charm
bracelet. Added a charm to this one and kept it simple.

This one is made with the same belt but put crystal studs in it. Love the look. Yet again, very simple design.

So that is it! What do you think?
