First thing you need to do is estimate a length of the garter to simply sew together to make a loop that will securely hold the 12 grams or tubes in place without them falling out or banging together, potnentially giving away your position.
Remember not to make the loops very far apart because when you wear this, its going to strech out.
I found that the easiest way to make loops stay in place was by using a staple gun to hold the pieces together and bending the staples in to stay in place. Sewing works as well, but is much more time consuming.
Make as many loops as you can, without making the garter to short to strap around your leg/wrist ect.
I also used elastic straps from old knee pads to make wrist harnesses. They are comfortable and dont move around too much.
This takes a small amount of creativity, and very little skill to do. Considering that most stock class harnesses cost upwards of 25$, this is a very cheap alternative. Garters can cost 3-5 dollars and the staple gun might be 15 bucks or better, but you can make as many harnesses as you need. It takes me about 15 minutes to put together a simple harness for wrist or leg, but im still workin on a waist harness. The materials to make this if you cant get garters are easily found at any wal-mart. Elastic straps, a cheap staple gun, wire cutters for making the staples the right length after you apply them, or a needle and thread. Tying the ends together may look odd, but with the garters connect end to end with no problem.
My harnesses are so sturdy i can run, jump and even try to shake them to drop the 12 grams or bang them together and they wont(I did this with 2 leg harnesses full of charged 12 grams on). The harness itself moves a little bit, but wont fall off or come undone. I stretched mine pretty far and it wont tear or release the staples(dont use a regular stapler...)
If anyone have questions, comments, or more ideas please post them.
