Belted Tray

My belt inspiration continues.  Starting with an old frame and a pile of thrift store belts I created this tray.  And no, I don't use a fork to eat my thin mints, but it looked better. 

For those who wanted to know how I made this, I glued the belts to the back piece of the frame--it is wood so very srurdy.  I placed a large book with weights on it while the glue dried.  The handles are belt pieces too.

Pattern or design used: My own design - Becky

This weeks member feature is from Bec4. What a creative reuse of old belts. Thanks for inspiring us, Bec! Those thin mint cookies look pretty yummy, too!
