Third BELT Chair

I made another BELT CHAIR! This is actually my third. We already have a full size belt chair and an elementary size belt chair that I made last year, and now we have a new toddler size chair for our youngest daughter (age 2).

The process of putting it together was really simple. First, using a knife, I cut away the old, broken, woven rush seat, and I cleaned the chair with an abrasive, soapy sponge. Then, I just wove the belts onto the chair, doing all of the side-to-side belts first and buckling them on the underside of the seat. For the front-to-back direction, I alternated going over or under the side-to-side belts. I used a hole punch tool in order to get the belts to buckle at the proper (smaller) size on the underside of the woven seat. Last, in order to keep the “tails” of the belts from hanging down, just use a zip-tie to hold them in place!

Easy Process:
1) Clean.
2) Weave.
3) Punch holes.
4) Buckle.
5) Zip tie.
6) Sit.

Isn’t our youngest daughter cute? 🙂 Bare feet, cookie crumbs, and wiggling around while I try to take a picture…such is the way with a two year old! I love, love, love her! 🙂

  1. Your belt chair is so adorable!! You’re so crafty!!

  2. I SO have a chair that needs this treatment–a family heirloom, a strange chair, a high chair built for a grown up, so it is, um, tall, but wide enough for anyone to sit in. My mom fixed it up with rope, once, but it needs a major overhaul and, wow, I have tons of belts I saved for something.
    Thanks ever so much!

  3. Hi! Popping over from ARWB. This belt chair is so creative and cute! Thanks for sharing the tutorial.
