Please enjoy this guest post by  Christina Lavingia Do you remember the first Mother’s Day gift you created with your own two hands? Mine was a potted plant.

This is one of the quickest fashion DIYs I’ve ever done. Ready? Let’s do this! First, gather your supplies. All you need is a yarn or upholstery needle, E6000 glue, an old belt and the buckle from the belt. You can also find small buckles at the craft store.
