Belts can be used in crafting rather than being discarded or donated. This is a guide about craft uses for belts.
Make a chair seat from old belts! I used as many leather belts as I got after my mom died a couple years ago and wove them onto where the seat was missing from this chair. I secured each end of the belt onto the wood with upholstery tacks.

Very nice! I think your chair is gorgeous because its so unique.
What an awsome Idea!!!!!
My daughter has a pink room. Pink ceiling, pink walls, pink comforter, pink hanging beads.........having a chair decorated like this would really add a good contrast, yet blend in. Thanks for a very cool idea! And I thought it was going to be a 'caning' chair.
Oops, it 'is' a caning project. I guess you could still do this on a regular chair too. I absolutely love this, especially the sentimental part.

Use as if were ribbon or fabric trim on curtains, pillows, furniture, frames.
Make a fashionable draft stopper for a door or window.
Cut it down to a pet collar.
Coil it onto a shadow box frame and hang it on the wall.
