1. Make the buckle end (left side) of the belt shorter than the other end. Cross your left hand (buckle end) over the right, then under and through like you’re starting to tie a knot.

2. Now the longer end will be in your left hand. Cross left hand over right, holding belt as close to the knot as possible.

3. Bring the longer end under and through the centre to create a loop. Pull the buckle end tight.
