Create a fun Father’s Day tie garland out of recycled men’s ties to decorate for Father’s Day Sunday this season.
Make dear old dad a handmade Father’s Day tie garland using the 5 easy steps below, and you just might grant him some of the attention he’s been lacking. This is the time you can hand over a little appreciation for the relationship you have with him. Create the perfect spotlight for him with this garland as the main light to the attraction. Share several photos with Dad from the past year on the family “trophy” shelf. Then add a little masculine swag with this handmade garland to complete the curated man shrine. It takes less than an hour to complete, and yet it adds so much merriment to the Rad Dad’s mantle of honor.
INSTRUCTIONS TO CREATE THE FATHER’S DAY TIE GARLAND:
- You need a dozen ties (I found very some very inexpensive ones available at thrift stores between $1-$3) and 1-2 packages of extra wide double fold bias tape (I used navy).
- Cut off about 5-6 inches from each end of the tie, depending on the look you want. Consider varying the tie piece lengths; it’s your project, change it up if you want!
- Purchase 1-2 package of extra wide double fold bias tape in a coordinating color. I chose navy. Follow the package instructions for binding a quilt. You are placing the individual pieces of ties in between the bias tape to create the garland.
- Space tie pieces about an inch or more between each one.
- Leave long enough bias tape ties on each end to attach to the removable hooks on your mantle or wall.
