One of the things that makes crafting so fun is you can create things for each holiday or season without spending a lot of money. Did you see the neckties I found on my recent trip to the Salvation Army in Mansfield, TX! Look at all these lovelies:

HOW TO MAKE A DIY Necktie Wreath

You can use a natural grapevine wreath, or paint it white. The white shows up a little better on the door. It’s totally up to you.

tying neckties onto wreath

Start by wrapping the tie around the wreath and securing it with a simple slip knot. This allows the neckties to hang nicely.

Repeat this process until all the neckties are tied to the wreath. I ended up using 6 neckties. I didn’t want to cover the entire wreath, but liked how the ties looked hanging on the bottom of the wreath.

I wanted to make sure the tie’s didn’t slip off, especially if we get a storm, so I ended up adding a zip tie to each necktie.

Now that the neckties are secure, it’s time to paint the wood sign for Father’s Day. You can use craft paint and the SVG is free on Cricut Design Space.

Use your hot glue gun to attach the sign to the wreath. This really makes this festive Father’s Day wreath! Look how adorable it looks hanging on my front door!

What do you think? Is this something you could see yourself making? What about using neckties from a grandfather or father as a super sentimental wreath idea? This would be so fun for a special birthday celebration for a guy too. Just change out the sentiment for birthday instead of Father’s Day.
