wreath made out of ties

16 Jan

So, since I didn’t really accomplish anything today, I figure I will share a craft I did for a Christmas present.

A few years ago, I got a bunch of my Grandfather’s old ties. I thought I could maybe wear them as belts or something like that. I think I did for a few days but since then they have been sitting in the closet.

My grandmother made all of these ties for him way back in the day. I think they are fantastic, especially the material choice.

So, I found a wreath online that was made of our ties. I thought it would be the perfect solution of what to do with these ties.

For Christmas,  I decided to make a wreath for my grandparents. I love how it turned out and it was super easy to put together. I got a foam wreath form at Joann’s. I covered it in plain teal fabric I had laying around. Then I cut the thick ends of the ties off and hot glued them to the wreath.

They loved it and knew pretty much right away what it was made from. I love seeing their faces when they open and love something I have created.
