Hi Pals. Thank you for stopping by. It's always to so good to see you!
With Father's Day coming up and all, I've been thinking about fun upcycle projects.
My husband had some worn out ties with spots and loose strings… basically problems. Most of the material was still good… so I wondered if we could use up "Dad's" old ties to make a festive wreath! I did end up picking a few up from Value Village (the thrift store too). The project is simple…
Supplies: Wreath form (Dollar Store), 7 upcycled neckties, blue felt, cardboard, circle template (a small bowl would work), marker, scissors, hot glue, letter stickers, red heart, red acrylic paint.
To make the "star" in the corner of the wreath. Cut large circles of cardboard and felt. Use hot glue to stick together.
Cut the large end off of 5 neckties. Glue it to the cardboard/felt in a star shape.
Trace and cut out another circle to cover the center of the ties.
Cut the smaller ends off 5 neckties and make a smaller star shape.
Trace a cut another circle from felt. Glue on top.
Add letter stickers.
Hot glue them down for safety.
Paint the small wooden heart red.
Tie a very "short" tie. Affix a sticker and the wooden heart on top. Meanwhile… wrap 6 ties around the wreath, securing with hot glue.
Use hot glue to stick the "star" on a corner. Tie the tie in an opposite corner.
Hooray for Dad!
