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
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.
