Button Belt

I’ll be the first to admit I’m a Pinterest addict. I saw this button belt and fell in love with it. The only bad thing? I forgot to pin it! So I have no idea where it came from. So if you know, tell me so I can give credit where it’s due.

Moving on…

This belt is super easy (and comfy!)


What you’ll need

-Length of 2” elastic slightly longer than your waist

-3 Hook & eye closures

-Tons of buttons!



1. Measure the length around your waist. Add ½”. Cut your elastic to that length. I like to lightly singe the edges with a match so it won’t fray

2. Fold back the ends ½” on each side. Stitch

3. Sew your three closures on the back side of the fold so that when closed, there is no gap

4. Start adding buttons! Don’t do too many with the same string. You want your belt to be able to stretch still. And that’s it. Seriously easy. I didn’t go all the way around the belt because I don’t have the attention span for it.
