Father's Day Tie Wreath

So here's a simple idea for father's day, and yes, I'm sure it could be done much cuter, but I couldn't pass up a chance to use these $3 garage sale ties, now could I?

If you want to make your very own wreath, just get a foam wreath form from a craft store ($3-$5).

Next, depending on the size of your wreath, cut off about 4-5 inches of the large end of each tie. The secret to this is getting the length right. Once you do this right the first time, just make sure you cut all ties the exact same length. You don't want your ties to stick off too far from the wreath or they'll be droopy, but too short and the foam will show.

I used a hot glue gun to attach all ties in an overlapping pattern, but you could get creative!

This really would be cutest with a big red bow and a tag that said Happy Father's Day, but I didn't do that so you could make yours way cuter than mine, of course. ;)

Happy crafting!
