Two weeks ago, I was shopping for our beach trip in Landmark when I came across these colorful belts for P19.75 each. I’m not exactly a belt wearer but these are perfect for DIY projects so I got one of each color and two red ones. I would have bought more if only I didn’t have other things to buy. Those belts will definitely be gone when I return to Trinoma but shopping for DIY materials was not part of the budget that time!
Anyway, I’ve been thinking about having a hanging planter in the house and using these belts is a great way to add a pop of color. I already have a spare vase lying around the house which I got from Uniwide Warehouse for P30.This project is really quick and easy. All you need are two belts, a vase and a pair of scissors.
Using the first belt, wrap it around the middle part of the vase or on its widest area. Mark the part of the belt where you plan to create a hole. Make sure it isn’t loose when it’s buckled up because it will hold the long belt and planter together. Once you have made the hole, cut the excess belt. Remove the little belt, put the other one just like the picture below and you’re done!
You can use the excess belt as an extension if your belt is too short. If you’re worried about the vase falling off, you may opt to secure it with a super glue. I like it this way because I can change the belt and the planter anytime. You can mix and match belt colors too.
Oh, and yes, the plant is fake. Don’t judge me! Haha!
