What youll need to make your DIY Neon Rhinestone Belt:

  • Neon cord – 9 pieces each cut to measure double your waist
  • 1 Brooch
  • Wire
  • Hot glue

Supplies To Make A Neon Rhinestone Belt
Step 1
Take your 9 strands of neon cord and bunch them all together and wrap tightly at one end with your wire.

Step 2
Using your hot glue, glue your ends. This will keep them from fraying and also from slipping out of the wire.

Step 3
Separate your strands into groups of 3 and braid. Make your braid as long as you want your belt to be.

Step 4
When you are finished braiding your belt, wrap your ends and cut if necessary. Then just like you did at the beginning, glue your ends.How to Make a Neon Rhinestone Belt

Step 5
Take your brooch and run the pin through the ends of your belt just under your wire wrappings and close.DIY Neon Rhinestone Belt Project

Sometimes its really great to be able to make an awesome accessory in minutes and update your look in less time than it takes to do your hair. Not every DIY project has to be super involved to be great. As with my last post DIY Statement Necklaces, this DIY Neon Rhinestone Belt can be mixed up with different brooches for a new look every time. It also doesnt require sacrificing a cool brooch to a project, you can reuse this brooch on your statement necklace too!

Have fun with your belt, if you dont want to go neon you can use neutrals or more classic colors and even mix colors for a multicolor belt. I could even see a red, white and blue one for the 4th of July. Any takers?

Let me know what you think and let me know how you customize this to make it your own.

Have a great weekend!
