How To: Create A New Belt Hole!

Ok ladies, let's be honest. We all have belts that we buy just *slightly* too tight so that when we put them on, it squeezes us all in tight and snug? Yeah that's not very comfortable....Or, do we have some belts that we've owned for a while, and suddenly are too small to use? Fret no longer! I have found a simple AND easy solution!! All you are going to need is a Screwdriver (or something similar), a Hammer, and a wood block (or a surface you do not mind getting hit at and scuffed)

You are going to find where you need to place the belt hole and place the screwdriver right on top of it. Bang on the hammer on top of the screwdriver until the screwdriver head penetrates the belt material. You may have to flip over the belt and do this on the backside to get a good hole. 

Stick the belt clasp thing (whatever its called) in the hole and move it around to stretch it out a bit to make it usable.

And voila! You fixed a belt! I would recommend only using this technique on leather or faux leather type belts. Other techniques may need to be used for fabric belts, belts made with glitter etc...But this works great for what I needed! Let me know if you have any questions and comment below if you tried this! 
Happy DIY!
