What you’ll need:
black garter
safety pins (make sure it a bit bigger that the garter)
needle and black thread

What you’ll need to do:

  1. Put the black garter around your waist to measure how long the belt should be. Cut the garter around 4 inches longer that the actual length to give space for the velcro.
  2. Insert the safety pins in the band making sure that it’s in a single pattern.
    TIP: Keeping a few pins in the middle will give your belt a nice metallic accent. But you can have fun and cover the whole thing with safety pins!
  3. Cut a 4-inch piece of velcro. Stitch the pieces on opposite ends of your belt with black thread.
