    Do you sew? A cute pattern with them is always fun for the table as a runner, placements, or centerpiece.

    Depending on what you are doing will tell me how to best advise you.

      A table covering made from my brother-in-laws ties. Yes I sew. I just would love to get the pattern for this tablecovering.

    Long ago when skinny ties went out my grandpa gave me his and I wove them together and sewed the edges for chair pads. He LOVED them. I would think you could do the same for a table runner!

    Most of the ideas to made placemats and table toppers or runners require some degree of quilting skills. Here are a few examples.

    Great! The design for this style of tabletopper is called Dresden Plate.

      Thanks from me too, lol.

      She got me thinking I've been wanting to do this and had forgotten what it was called.

    My cousin made a gorgeous lap throw in a star pattern for my grandmother after my grandfather passed away using his favorite neck ties. I think a table runner or cloth featuring some would be beautiful and a wonderful conversation starter.

    I love the picture of the round table topper someone posted above. I bet you could make that one by gluing rather than sewing. Look at what I made with some of my husband's neckties after he retired. I must glued down, a little sewing and, of course, stapled to the wood but using the same concept, you can sew invisibly, by hand, the ties to the round piece and then lay out and glue along the edges inside to achieve this look.
