DIY: Leather Bungee Belt

If you’ve ever asked me to borrow a belt, then you know how large my belt collection is, and for those of you who don’t know, let’s just say that it’s housed in a file cabinet, and packed to the max. When I saw this bungee chord inspired belt on the Fall 2013 Givenchy runway, I knew I had to have one. Since my budget most likely won’t allow me to splurge on such an accessory, I decided to make one myself. DIY Bungee Leather Givenchy Belt, How To, Women's Fashion Accessories | DeSmitten

Gather Your Tools: Metal bungee chord ends (I found mine on eBay, and they were smaller than I wanted, but if you have an extra bungee chord around your house, then just untie the elastic chord and use the metal ends) + scissors + leather chord

Slip one end of your leather chord through one of the metal ends and tie a secure knot. DIY Givenchy Bungee Leather Belt  | DeSmitten

Since the chord I chose is very thick, its easier to unbraid it partially, then tie a knot.DIY Givenchy Bungee Leather Belt  | DeSmitten DIY Givenchy Bungee Leather Belt  | DeSmitten DIY Givenchy Bungee Leather Belt  | DeSmitten Then slip the leather chord through the other metal end, but don’t tie your knot until you are sure it’s the right size. Wrap the belt around your waist and hook the two metal ends together. Pull the leather chord as tight as you feel comfortable. Note that this belt must be rather tight for the closure to work. When you are comfortable with the length of the leather chord, tie a knot on the other end.DIY Givenchy Bungee Leather Belt  | DeSmitten

Pull the metal hooks so the leather knots are hidden among the coils, and so they don’t pop out.
