What to do? There is nothing to do but get CREATIVE! I still needed to make the tool belt for his costume and I had a basic outline for doing so from The Creative Maven.
Her plan used a place mat to create the tool belt. I loved this idea because I knew that he would be rough with it and I wanted it to last so he could use it for dramatic play. I decided that I could pull this off using a GLUE GUN! Thanks to A Girl and a Glue Gun for inspiring projects using a glue gun!
This plan could not have been easier especially using a glue gun!! All I had to do was fold the place mat in half then fold one side down one inch. I glued the half inch down then glued the sides down. I added a loop for the hanging hammer. I also glued binding to add a bit of embellishment.
I glued the strap on the back of the tool belt. I already had bought the clip to open and close the straps and I just put it on with a bit of glue too! I am telling you, SUPER EASY! And I still think it looks cute! I did not tell anyone it was glued and no one noticed. So make a tool belt for your little one today!
Thanks The Creative Maven, I copied that!
