Beaded Belt

Macrame Belt
Once I thought about how to make a simple macrame belt, but reliable, because regular belts were often torn. I wanted a belt with shiny beads. Initially, she took a cord twisted from 2 strands, but it turns out very soft, does not hold the shape and appearance. You can only take braided hard cord in the hardware store.

So, for a 1-meter belt, you will need: 3 pieces of cord with a diameter of 1.5 mm and a length of 5.5 meters. 3 skeins of beads (125 each) with a diameter of 5 mm Buckle (on the inside 2.5 mm) - but as it turned out later, the belt would look much better on a 3.5 mm buckle. 1. I burned the ends of the cord on the flame of the candle (so that it was easier to wear the beads, folded it in half and fixed it to the buckle with a double canopy so that the belt tongue fell in the middle of one of the loops. Then, along the extreme threads, fixed it with the buckle on the left and right sides 2 times. That's what happened:
