A Duct Tape Belt {for Boys}

The duct tape belt that I made for Lila has been wildly popular and I decided to make a boy version for Luke.  Here it is: the duct tape belt for boys!

I used a skull print from Duck Brand {technically a Halloween print, I believe, but Luke loves it} to make the belt.  I ripped a piece of duct tape a bit longer than his waist measurement and put another thinner piece on top.  The thinner piece should be no wider than your buckle and will be the final width of the belt.

… then put the end through the belt buckle and back along itself and sealed it with a piece of solid black duct tape.

I repeated with the other side after trimming the ends to the length I wanted.

Because Luke is a little guy that loves treasures, I also made a simple pocket that can slide on and off the belt.

Luke will hardly take his duct tape belt off so I guess it’s a hit!

What do you think?  Would your little guy wear a duct tape belt?



Duck Brand Duck Tape provided the duct tape used in this project but all opinions are my own.

    My little guy loves them – he has two! One in the red dragon print & one in a black & white checkered pattern :)

    I like your duct tape belt , but do need to ask – how do you make that “simple pocket?” Yep, I need instructions even for that. :) Thanks.

      I believe I stuck two rectangular pieces of tape sticky sides together, then folded them in half and taped them together at the sides, leaving the top open. Then I attached two pieces together to make the tab and used tape to attach it to the pocket. I hope that helps!
