Has your husband/dad/papaw got way too many ties in the closet? Do some of them have spots and are no longer nice enough to be worn? Ready to find a new way to give a favorite tie some new life? Here’s a super simple idea that will turn an old TIE into a bookmark. This is so simple, you can make 1 or 10 in just a few minutes. Gift it with a new book for the man in your life or include it with a gift card to turn the traditional tie gift into a gift to remember.

How to turn an old TIE into a Bookmark
- Pick out your favorite old tie.
- Measure about 14 inches from the bottom skinny part of the tie.
- Tuck in the cut edge so it won’t unravel. No sewing necessary.
- Make a knot in the end.
- Tuck it in a book or add a gift card.
- Give it to the man in your life.
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).
