The ManFlesh likes slightly outrageous belt buckles and has a small collection that sat in a pile on his chest of drawers. To make them easier to choose and also display them, I made this "holster" for them based on a vintage piece I saw on Ebay a couple years ago.



It will hold a dozen buckles and with his two belts will mean his collection can expand to 14 before we need to find another solution. Luckily, he's neither a shopper nor a collector. Wink



Each "slot" consists of a snapped flap and holes to hold the buckle in place as if it were installed on the belt.



I used a piece of scrap closet rod I had from renovating our closet, a couple upholstery tacks and a strip of the cork-backed vinyl the rest of it is made from to make the hanger.



And this is the back.



This was a very late Christmas gift (there were... challenges... to getting the proper materials and tools and then trying to find time to concentrate was it's own challenge). So I hung it on the wall over his chest of drawers, then taped wrapping paper and a bow to the wall over it and presented it to him that way.

Thanks! For some reason I have been calling it a "holster" this whole time, so I just kept with it!
