Tie One On

This is my LAST (I think) Dad's Day craft for this year.  Having used some of my late grandfather's ties in theis project, it turned out to be one I will be happy to get out every year.  And, my sister will be happy to know that there MAY be a few ties left over for her...

So, I started with my pile of ties (from Rummage Sales, Grandpa, and the Dollar Tree), and a spool of white ribbon.

Then, I cut the ends off of the ties, and stitched to a strand of ribbon (taking the lazy easy route, NO PINNING!), like so....

Until you get....

Then, stitch another ribbon on top (I used a zig zag stitch).  Hang up on your mantle (or if you live in a mantle-lacking shoebox of a condo - your entertainment center)...and be sure to add in your DAD is RAD decor found HERE!
