Crafty Belt

Total Time Needed: 1-2 Hours

This simple craft foam belt will add a touch of spring to just about any outfit.

Materials

  • Flower and leaf stencils or a cookie cutters (ours were about 3 inches across)
  • Craft foam
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • 15 feet of cording or yarn
  • Beads (optional)

Instructions

1. Your child can use a stencil or a cookie cutter to trace a number of flowers and leaves onto craft foam. Cut them out, then use a hole punch to make 1 or 2 holes in each shape, taking care not to make them too near the edge, as the foam may tear.

2. Gather together three 5-foot lengths of cording or yarn and thread on the craft foam shapes, centering the shapes near the middle of the cording.

3. Braid the remaining cording at each end of the belt, then tie an overhand knot 4 or 5 inches from each end.

4. Add a bead or another foam shape to each piece of cording and tie a knot at the end to keep it in place.
