Fashion Accessory DIY Tutorial: Lanyard Recycling: Make a Belt with Ropes and Lanyards

A few years ago there was a big hype with the lanyards. Wherever you went, you got one as a present. By the way I got a large collection of these lanyards, although I didn’t really need one. Recently, therefore, I removed the caps of all my lanyards to keep them for my fashion DIY projects. For example to tinker this rope waist belt.

Material And Tools – For This DIY Project You Need

Fashion Accessory DIY Tutorial: Lanyard Recycling: Make a Belt with Ropes and Lanyards - required material

  1. Rope (about 3.50 meters, from the hardware store)
  2. Some thin felt or (even better:) leather (thanks to my readers Luisa and Ramona for the hint)
  3. Carabiner hooks (from old lanyards)
  4. Hot glue gun
  5. Scissors
  6. Pins

DIY Tutorial: The Step-By-Step Craft Instructions

DIY Step 1

Make a double knot at one end of the rope.

DIY Step 2

Swing the rope around the waist and find the fitting position for the carabiner hook. Now pull the rope twice with a small loop first through the closure and then through the loop.

DIY Step 3

Repeat these first two steps for two more times. But now I’ve swapped the sides: First, a closure left, then at the next round put a closure on the right side and finally on the left side again.

DIY Step 4

From the leather (in my case, unfortunately, from the felt) cut six small strips.

DIY Step 5

Put some hot glue on the strip.

DIY Step 6

Wrap the strips just below the knot around the rope. DONE!

TIP: Now you can sew together the various ropes or twist them wildly together. I have left my rope belt straight, just to find out, how it fits best.

    Dana,

    You’ve changed your blog’s feed settings, and now the feed only contains a very small image and a few words from the beginning of the post. This is not a good idea. I only check blogs using their feeds, and I think the feeds are there for user’s convenience. Making feeds short and stale is not helpful.

    Please consider

      Hi Hojjat,
      sorry about shortening the feed, but a lot of websites copy my feeds automatically to present them as their own content.
