Thrifted Necktie Patriotic Wreath

2 Materials
Easy

Neckties are a dime a dozen at thrift stores...So why not turn them into a fun, unique way to show your support for Memorial Day, Flag Day, and the 4th of July with a patriotic wreath?
Find all my hints and tips to making this wreath in the original blog post!
To create this, you'll need a wire wreath form (available at craft stores), some safety pins, a needle and thread, and of course, the neckties! I used 14 in total- all of which I collected from various thrift stores.
First, I cut each necktie to size- about 15" long, saving the wider end of each tie. Then, I wrapped the cut end around the wire frame a few times, and safety-pinned it in place.
I continued with each additional tie...overlapping the ties ever so slightly, and finagling them so that the corners matched up all the way around.
After all the ties were in place, I whipped stitched them together at the corners and where they wrapped around themselves- very simple, and pretty quick. Then, I removed the safety pins and hung it on my front door!
Please check out the original blog post for all the steps and instructions!

    This is a terrific idea!!! I love it!! I can see some help in makin' it stand out.......that is: Add some white lace or whatever around the center and the outside of the wreath itself. (hot glue) It will all blend and show off your wreath. Give it some FULL attention.....a finished look!! I can see it now.
