Simple Belt Refashion

Spring cleaning left me with this big ol’ pile of outgrown belts that I cleared from the pit in the daughter’s closet.

Lot’s of repurposing possibilities here, but I particularly had my eye on extending the life of this little belt that I’ve always loved on my daughter, though it has long been outgrown and damaged:

Not an especially earth-shattering refashion, but a useful one for us, I turned this belt into a headband.  I simply measured my daughters head, salvaged as much of the belt as I could and attached a piece of elastic to both ends.

Voila!  So simple.

Ignoring my daughter’s perpetual state of ragamuffin hair, the headband is cute, no?
