Father’s Day DIY Wreath Out Of Old Ties
You can make this upcycled wreath out of Dad’s old neckties. Ask permission first, but these days, men are not wearing neckties as much as they used to and this could be a sentimental and fun gift that is no-sew and takes just a few minutes to put together. If Dad doesn’t want to part with his neckties, you can easily find some at your favorite thrift store. I found these at my favorite Goodwill of Orange County
Wreath (I used a 12″)
Ties (I used 12 ties)
Hot Glue Gun
Bring the tie through the middle of the wreath and place where you’d like the triangle part of the tie to sit on your wreath.
Lay that end on the table, and bring your other end over the wreath and cut the tie where it lands in the middle of the wreath.
Apply hot glue on the tie and then press against the wreath.
Note: You may notice some gaps on the sides, just apply more hot glue and press down firmly.
Apply hot glue to the remaining side of the tie and lay on top of the already glued piece.
Note: Do not glue the triangle part of the tie as you want it to hang off the wreath.
Continue to do this to all the ties around the wreath, overlapping the ties to completely cover the wreath.
Use one of the cut up ties to make a bow and attach to your wreath with hot glue.
Note: Cut a triangular shape to the end of the tie.
