Looking for some fun crafts to make for DAD? Father’s Day is around the corner so we are sharing 4 of our favorite tutorials for Dad! Happy Father’s Day!
BOW TIE WRAP
Wrap little gifts + treats with bow ties or neck ties! Simply wrap bow ties around simple, wrapped boxes. Choose a simple wrapping paper and matching bow tie. Consider visiting vintage stores to find old bow ties in unique prints. Or pull out scrap paper and markers to make your own bow ties (great for the kids)!
We love this easy DIY wrapping!
NECK TIE WREATH
“Turn Dad’s old ties into door decor. You’ll need a 14-inch wire wreath form from a crafts shop and 19 ties. Cut all ties but one into 15-inch lengths. Position the narrow end of first cut tie, front side up, on a section of the wreath. Wrap tie around form until pointed end is positioned as shown, hiding the rolled tie; secure with pins. Repeat, overlapping ties slightly. Flip wreath over; sew rolled-up ties to the backs of points. Pin on the uncut, bowed tie.” – Good Housekeeping.com
