Quick and Easy Accessory: Necktie Headband

Photography by Lauryn Clemmer, Love Notes by Lauryn

We suspect that in the back of Dad’s closet, you’ll find at least one or two old neckties from Father’s Days gone by that haven’t made an appearance for a while. Before you ship them off to a dark corner of the basement, consider giving them a new purpose with this great DIY accessory idea from the crafty Lauryn Clemmer of Love Notes by Lauryn: the necktie headband.

This is a great craft idea for older kids who are looking for a new way to show off their stylish side. We’re sure there won’t be many of these popping up on the first day of school—a bonus if your child fancies herself a trendsetter.

What you’ll need:
• A necktie
• Glue gun
• Clasp

You’ll find the full tutorial for these funky necktie headbands over on Lauryn’s site. If you don’t have a stash of old neckties at home, try browsing thrift stores to find some colourful patterns that won’t cost nearly as much as a brand new model.
