  1. Pick out your favorite old tie.
  2. Measure about 14 inches from the bottom skinny part of the tie.

This is a super simple craft idea that will make a great gift.

Bonus Idea: My dad recently weeded out his extensive tie collection. Since he has worn ties my whole life, I recognize many of the ties he wears on a regular basis. I think this would be a neat way to share some of those special ties with all the grandkids and family members. It would allow these ties to bring back memories every time you read a chapter in your book.

Have you ever done anything creative to recycle neckties? I’d love to hear (or see your ideas).
