Crafy Constance: Up-cycle Tie Necklace

By Constance Jones - Anchor

I found this awesome project on Pinterest and I had to share it. It is truly a cool and crafty idea.

What you need:

  • Old tie
  • Button
  • Scissors
  • Pins
  • Needle
  • Thread

STEP ONE: Lay out your tie out flat and then start folding and pining in a manner that's pleasing to you. 

STEP TWO: Place the tie around your next and add additional folds to make sure it's at the length you want.  Keep in mind you'll want to be able to have the necklace slip on and off your head after the button is sewn down.

STEP THREE: Take your needle and thread and start stitching. 

STEP FOUR: Place your button or other fun accent piece and stitch down.

STEP FIVE: Enjoy your great necklace!!!

Special thanks to for this wonderful idea!
