3. Square Sweater Tie
When I think of Father’s Day, I think ties! It seems to be the traditional gift given to millions of dads every year. Put an interesting and DIY twist on a staple gift by transforming a sweater into a square tie! This tutorial, found on JAME, shows you how to take a thrifted sweater and turn it into a one-of-a-kind tie. This gift will be anything but traditional and will add an interesting shape and texture to his tie collection. The ease of this project allows you to whip up a whole line of square sweater ties; one for every day of the week.
Will you be making, or helping to make, Father’s Day gifts this year? What are some of your favorite gifts to make for the men in your life? I would love to see some links, tutorials, and suggestions on how to make this Father’s Day DIY and eco-friendly. Feel free to leave any comments or links!
