Three DIY Necktie Projects

Yesterday, we showed you how to add a little cute to a thrifted necktie with a felt applique, but what about the rest of the ties in your crafty stash? Don’t fret! We’ve got you covered with some super fun necktie crafts.

What I love about sewing with vintage neckties is choosing fun patterns and mixing them up together. We’ve got a project here that uses just one tie, one that calls for several, and there’s even a video tutorial on how to whip up your very own necktie from scratch. Happy repurposing!
