I want to try a little DIY post for you guys. I have never done a DIY post before but I do tons of DIYs in my spare time and this one is so fast and easy I just had to share. When I was looking at the picture of the belt necklace below my first thought was, "CA'UUUTE." Then my second thought was, "I COULD TOTALLY MAKE THAT." So I did. And It literally cost me zero cash.

First thing you will need A BELT. Obviously. I think I've worn this belt in a few posts before but I got bored of it and thought it could be put to better use. You will also need SCISSORS and something to mark the belt with, I chose to use FABRIC CHALK but a pencil or marker will do too. You might also need a sharp NAIL and or SCREWDRIVER.
STEP 1: Wrap the belt around your neck to MEASURE how large the belt necklace should be.
STEP 2: Make a MARK on the belt according to your measurements. CUT.
STEP 3: I CURVED the end of the belt necklace so it looked more like a belt.(if that makes sense?)
STEP 4: MEASURE the belt again on your neck and MARK where you want to put the buckle hole.
STEP 5: To MAKE A HOLE you can use the scissors but if you are having a hard time piercing through the belt you can use a nail and/or a screwdriver to pierce through. Make sure the hole is large enough to fit the belt buckle and add extra holes to make it look more "belt-y"

You could also do a bunch of thin belts and layer them up, or even a studded belt could be cool too. Or this could work for a really cool bracelet too. I think I might bedazzle this one later. The choices are endless. I think it is the perfect little accessory to add some extra edge. Kinda looks like a dog collar/ kinda harness-esque. I did this in like five minutes so I am sure you guys can do a way much better job than me. If you have any questions, or if you want to see more DIYs from me (maybe more intense DIYs, whatever floats your boat) let me know in the comments down below!

PS. Thanks for all the hair suggestions! I really love the idea of coloring my bangs a funky color as well as dip dying.or ombre. I am debating between green, purple, red or pink. I am even contemplating on orange.
