Thrift stores in my neighborhood are full of these extra thick, extra decorative Western-style "cowboy" belts that look more late 1980s line dancing than late 1880s cattle rustler. It'd take a partner much braver than me to wear one in the real world, butI dig Matt's point that they're so ornamental, they're akin to profile molding. So, on that note, he turned one into an upcycled picture frame.
Mitered leather work! Make one for yourself, one for a Father's Day gift, and one to frame that photo of your next great outdoor adventure.
