Instructions

  1. Cut a piece of fabric to fit the belt buckle.  Attach the fabric using Fabric Mod Podge. Using Sea Glass Mod Melts and a Mod Melter, attach leather trim around the edge of the belt buckle.
  2. Heat a Mod Melt stick in a Mod Melter (or high temp glue gun).  Squeeze into a Mod Mold.  (We made corner flowers in gold and a daisy in red) Allow to cool for seven minutes and pop out. Using Mod Melt in a coordinating color, glue the embellishments to the belt buckle.
  3. Working on the belt buckle, pool Mod Melt into small puddles and sink beads into the melt. Using heavy-duty glue, add more beads to the design. Apply rhinestones to the design with gem glue.

PROJECT TIP: Show off your style.  Personalize the belt buckle to your personal style and colors by using different colors of Mod Melt sticks.
