So I'm not much of an artistic person or handy person when it comes to doing these things on my own. Are there any good tutorials or videos on how to install the rivets for my mini flares on my belt? I just don't really know what I am doing when it comes to this.

Thanks!

You mean the aluminum ones with the hole in them?

Do you have the belt already made? If so, just slide the flares into the loops and stick a screw in through the back of the belt to keep them in place. Or use some metal wire, that's what I did... I looped the wire around the flare, slid the flare into the loop and poked the wire through the webbing, then twisted the wire a few times and glued it down with E-6000 so that it wouldn't poke me.

I used a needle and thread to sew mine into place. Simple screws would be a very simple good method as well.

Rivets seem overkill for this, and you can't remove them without damage. I'd look to other methods.

Mine are wood and I glued them.
