How to make a $14 viking belt

How to make a $14 viking belt?

Easy!

A decorative belt to your dress really makes your outfit gorgeous! Woven belts are ideal for adding a flash of texture to a dress during the summer. They give a very classic spin when worn with a linen.

But then if you want a high authentic handwoven belt as they made during viking age it will cost you from $50- $350!  They are gorgeous and handmade in natural fabrics such as wool and linen. I thought I would share a great way to make your own belt a lot cheaper.

In our website we sell machine made ribbons to decorate the clothes with.  These can also be used as waistbands. I have used 2 meters of a normal jacquard woven ribbon.  To make it look like a proper belt you need tassels!  There are a thousand different way of making a tassel but here is the most easy way: Cut the ribbon in wanted length. 2- 3 meters is nice.

Start removing the white tread and make it as long as you want it. That is basically it!

When finished add a knot and your done! Make the tassel long or short as preferred.  Easy isn’t it?
