[DIY] Moschino Inspired Belt

Moschino-branded belts have been all over the fashion blogosphere for the past few years. These gold-lettered belts have become a must-have in their own right, but at around $300, they are out of range for many fashionistas. I easily created my own custom version of this iconic belt for under $10.

You will need:
Plain belt
Gold foil scrapbooking letters
E-6000 or hot glue

So I somehow lost all of the photos from when I was DIY'ing this piece, but it's so simple! Using your scrapbooking letters, spell out whatever you want to say on your belt and glue them on in a straight line. 
If your letters are adhesive backed, like the ones I used, peel off the backing before you glue the letters on, or your letters will fall off and only the backing will remain on your belt (I learned the hard way, oops!) Let your glue set overnight and you will be left with a gorgeous custom Moschino-inspired belt that can be worn with many different outfits. 

I tried this project with spray painted wood letters, but they didn't come out shiny enough for my preference. I would also love to try this project with charm letters like these if I ever find any that are large enough. Did you try this project? I would love to see how it turned out.
