Stylishly Stretchy

Thanks so much for checking out my recycling projects!
This week, I featured blahs from a bag of scrap
that I found at a New York City flea market:

After sorting through the "scraps", I've
made a number of accessories that
can jazz up the plainest outfits.

Today, I'm finding some practical use for
these scalloped metal adornments.

Tada! I made a belt!

It's made of black elastic & a metal closure
that I bought at a sewing store.
The gold "buttons" were attached
with hot glue.

It reminds me of art deco design that
can still be modern to this day.

Have a fun weekend!
