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 β€œtails” 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? πŸ™‚ 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! πŸ™‚
