    This is a Pinterest question! There is a world of ideas out there, and some are really beautiful. Search "Men's ties projects" or "Necktie projects" Be prepared to see some real ingenuity at work. Have fun!

    if they are good silk, take apart, lay flat, ( lots of dry cleaners will clean and press them for you when you have them apart - so they are still lined, but not 'folded' over into the 'tube' shape); measure them, and determine what length you would prefer -- you will lay them out in a pleasing color/pattern etc. and stitch the long sides together; you will end up with a 'piece' of material, made from the ties and you can then make a vest, a shirt, a skirt, etc. http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-Skirt-from-Neckties/ or https://www.pinterest.com/pin/184084703493639158/?lp=true shows pillows

    With ties, wire coat hangers for flex and rice we made snakes that were so cute. You put the wire inside the tie using small end of tie as the tail
    Sew that end shut. Form your wire to your desire. Pour in the rice or beans to give it weight. Fold the large end over to look sort of like a cobra hood. Stitch shut. Add a red pipe cleaner forked tongue and wiggly eyes. Makes a great door stop standing up. You can make it without the wire as a draft step for the bottom of the door. Sorry, no pictures. This was years ago. I've also seen a pillows, skirts, bookcovers, scarves and shawls just by laying them wide to narrow alternating, stitching together and then cut out your pattern. Good luck.

    Men's ties? Lattice them on a straight chair bottom.
