Fun Father’s Day DIY: Upcycled Wreath Made From Old Neckties

Are you looking for a fun Father’s Day DIY gift? You can make this easy upcycled wreath for his office or man cave!

Father's Day DIY Necktie
You can make this upcycled wreath out of Dad’s old neckties. Ask permission first, but these days, men are not wearing neckties as much as they used to and this could be a sentimental and fun gift that is no-sew and takes just a few minutes to put together. If Dad doesn’t want to part with his neckties, you can easily find some at your favorite Goodwill of Orange County store.
Supplies:
Wreath (I used a 12″)
Ties (took 12 ties)
Scissors
Hot Glue Gun
DIY Necktie Wreath Supplies
 
Step 1:
Bring the tie through the middle of the wreath and place where you’d like the triangle part of the tie to sit on your wreath.

Step 3:
Apply hot glue on the tie and then press against the wreath.
Note: You may notice some gaps on the sides, just apply more hot glue and press down firmly.

Step 4:
Apply hot glue to the remaining side of the tie and lay on top of the already glued piece.
Note: Do not glue the triangle part of the tie as you want it to hang off the wreath.

Step 5:
Continue to do this to all the ties around the wreath, overlapping the ties to completely cover the wreath.
Step 6: DIY Necktie Wreath Finished
Step 6:
Use one of the cut up ties to make a bow and attach to your wreath with hot glue.
Note: Cut a triangular shape to the end of the tie.
Happy Father’s Day!!!!
