Spring Belt

I was flipping through the j.crew catalog last week and thought this belt was so cute. Probably not the most practical and probably not something I’d wear over and over again, but I still love it. The price though is hard to justify for one of those “wear a handful of times” accessories. Also, it basically consists of ribbon, a silk flower and some crystals.
A few days later I was in the craft store and noticed the silk flowers on sale. I remembered this belt and thought I’d try to recreate it myself. It was very simple and didn’t take much time at all. I can’t say it’s quite as cute as the j.crew version, but for 1/16th of the price, it will do for those occasions where I want to wear something “different”.
