5 Necktie Crafts inspired by Father's Day!

While I'm Waiting...5 necktie crafts inspired by Father's Day
Father's Day is Sunday and one of the images that always comes to mind is neckties.  It's not something that I typically give but seeing these crafts makes me want to go buy some just to craft with!  My original inspiration came from Kim at Hunt & Host.  She posted this DIY here.
Isn't that fabulous?!  I love when someone inspires me to think outside the box (and bonus when they give me instructions on how to do it!).  Here are some other necktie crafts for you to do (just be sure you ask your dad/hubby before you cut up his favorite tie!).  :)
source (but sadly a tutorial is not included)

I made the gutsy move to add a Pinterest craft a week to our Summer Bucket List.  Maybe Holden and I can work on one of these crafts this week!  Follow me on Instagram to see our completed project!

Have a fabulous day!  Gig 'em and God bless!

  4. Holly! I love these necktie crafts! How have I never seen these before?! Too cute! I may try to keep my eye out for good deals on these color ties.

    Also--I tagged you in a blog post today. Check it out, if you get a chance =)

    1. Hi, Kelly! Necktie crafts just kept popping up on my Pinterest feed and they were so cute! I never would have thought to take a tie apart and use it for something else (duh!). I get so inspired but others work and I just wanted to share. I'm so glad you stopped by! I'll work on my Love/Hate/Tag post this week - thanks for the tag! :)

  5. Love these ideas! Mic wears a tie just about every day of the week for work. Of course X, or I should say I, haven't done anything for him yet for Father's Day. I need to add these to my list in the future! I think since it is Friday I will have to settle for a card and making him a nice dinner! The only thing he has mentioned was alone time. lol!

    1. Hehe - we don't do anything for Mike. It stinks for someone like me, who loves to give gifts, to be married to someone who really doesn't ever want anything (and if he does, it's usually way more than I can afford!). We settled for a family hike followed by an evening swim. But, the best part was that he couldn't have been happier! I'm hoping that Holden and I can use a couple of his ties and make a bag or two this week! ;) Thanks for stopping by! Have a super week!

    1. Aren't they?! We haven't created anything yet. Need to make a trip to Jo-ann's for interface. Hoping to make the wreath and a bag or two. Bring the ties and she'll make you something! ;)

    1. Thank you! My 10 year old daughter is just learning to sew so I'm always on the lookout for fun things she can make! Thanks for stopping by!

  9. These are really cute ideas with the ties!

    I never thought of using old ties like this. I think I like the wreath the most!

    Thanks for sharing~

    1. I've never thought to use them either. I'm very type A - I usually don't see past an original material's potential. Sounds like there could be a life lesson in there... :)
