DIY: Belt Watches

August 4, 2012

I grabbed this idea from one of my favorite men’s style blogs, The X-Stylez.  Check out their post so you can see how they tackled this DIY as well.  What’s great about this DIY project is that you really only need two items to create a brand new accessory.

  • A small woman’s/child’s belt
  • A watch face

Be careful to make sure the watch face has big enough slits for your belt to fit through before actually going out and purchasing a belt, if you don’t have one on hand.  That the most difficult part of the process is making sure you’ve got the perfect belt for your watch face.  I found my belts at the thrift store $.50-$1 a piece and grabbed some old watch faces from my parents house as well as one from Goodwill.

Once you have those two items, just cut off the band of your watch (if you haven’t done so already) and slip in the belt in its place.  There you have it, a band new belt watch.  Check out three I made below.



  1. You are so talented and are full of cool ideas! I love this Josh!

  2. Love, love, love this! And it seems simple enough that anyone can do it. This is definitely something I would like to try.
