I made my sons when he earned his black belt. I tried for a Asian design. Routed a circle for his school patch to it in. Trophy shop made the plates with the dates he earned his belts. Belt boards are sized to the belts, 1/4” maple, eye hooks join the boards. I bought black elastic material and sewed it into rings to hold the belts to the boards. I hope this help. Congratulations to your granddaughter!

When I studied martial arts (Judo), all we had was white, green, brown and black. After 9 degrees of black, you wore a white belt. There aren’t many 10th degree belt holders around.

This Asian-inspired bookshelf looks like it’s easy to assemble and would make a great-looking wall display:
