I’m always looking for ways to celebrate dad and since we celebrated Mom with a Crown, found HERE, we gotta be fair and celebrate Dad with a Father’s Day Tie Crown.
Remember my 17 year tie tradition using handmade or upcycled ties? You can find the idea HERE and HERE! Well, here was last year’s, it was the year of the flower beds. Be sure and check back next Monday for this year’s 2017 Father’s Day Tie post.
Here’s how you can make your own Father’s Day Tie Crown:
- 2 pieces of 11X14 chipboard seamed together with glue at the short side
- 6-7 used ties (I used both ends of the ties to get different dimensions)
- glue gun and hot glue sticks
- 1-1/2″ double fold bias tape in color of your choice, I used black
- 1-2 yards of a gold chain trim or ric rack (mine is from May Arts)
- Printable small banner “King for a Day” found in a Father’s Day kit available HERE
I lined up men’s ties and cut them to the length I wanted. These were cut at about 10″ in length. I placed them according to color combinations. Then I drew lines to show placement of the line up on the chipboard. Be sure to keep them in order when removing, not all ties are made from the exact same pattern and it might be tricky getting them back in the correct order.
And wah-la, Dad is a king for a day!
My Matt thought it was ridiculous and he won’t be wearing it to church! It’s okay, it looks great on my mantle and we can use it as a centerpiece at the table!
