Things You'll Need
- Spray paint
- Faux jewels
- Velcro patches
Creating a World Wresting Entertainment (WWE) belt is one way to express your interest in the sport. WWE belts are lined with large panels that feature ostentatious designs and jewelry. Get creative with the invention of your own belt. Use different colors, beads and faux jewels to make your belt sparkle. Make the WWE belt a craft project for children or students. Allow them to share ideas and apply their own imagination to give the belt a distinctive appeal.
Cut out a cardboard center plate and four side plates for your belt. Make your center plate the shape a large diamond or a wide hour glass. Cut the two medium side plates that will sit flush to the left and right side of the center plate in the same shape. Trim the final two small side plates that will sit flush to the first set of left and right side plates in the same shape.
Wrap the center plate and each side plate in tin foil. Apply metallic gold spray paint to each plate. Metallic spray paint will boost the shine and give the belt that authentic WWE gold tint.
Glue beads, faux gems and jewels to the center plate and to each side plate. Make the "WWE" letters with jewels on the center plate. Create different geometrical shapes -- stars or diamonds, for instance -- on the remaining side plates. Use various colors to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the belt.
Apply Velcro patches to the backside of each plate. Line a thick, black belt with Velcro patches as well. Connect the plates to the belt with the Velcro. Allow side plates to overlap, if necessary, to add a bulky, chunky look to your completed WWE belt.
