A simple baldrick from a belt

Here’s a quick and easy way to make a baldrick from a belt. This particular one was for one of my kids but you could make an adult sized baldrick with a long enough belt.

The process begins of course with the belt. I always manage to find piratical style belts at Goodwill, Savers, or other local thrift stores. Once you have a belt that looks decent, you simply put a twist in it to make a loop and then buckle it.

In the second picture I have punched a couple of holes through the belt with a nail and am adding rivets to hold the loop in place. The rivets and rivet tool can be found in the leather section of your local craft store (you could just hot glue it of course). The final pic shows the finished baldric in action.
