    Christmas Tree made with neckties

    Does anyone know how to make a Christmas tree using old neckties? My father passed away in June and I would love to do something with his neckties. Esp. something that I can do for all three of us. I have heard of a tree being made with them but cannot find a pattern or directions.

    Oh, gosh. My deepest condolences on your loss, Jackie. icon_sad.gif

    Pickings are pretty slim in terms of necktie Christmas trees.

    I found this necktie wreath:

    I think these are pinned to a styrofoam cone.

    Thanks so much Molly, I believe that I will have to go with the wreath. I was just hoping there was something I could make for all three of us but I don't believe that I can make 3 of those. Gotta go count Dad's ties now.

    Jackie, what about something a little smaller (i.e., uses less neckties) that it a little bit more utilitarian?

    Jackie Im so sorry for your loss! grouphug.gif

    The necktie Idea sounds wonderful and Molly has already given your great examples. Maybe something not necessarily Christmas related, but that could still work as a Christmas gift is a good idea when you dont have that many ties to use. You could e.g. go with the pillow idea, but make smaller pillows that you fill with lavender or the like to have in your closet freshening your clothes.

    Here are some additional ideas, I came across:


    Tutorial for a Necktie Scarf


    Tutorial for a necktie bag (maybe scale this down to make a small handbag or clutch for all three of you)


    Tutorial for a small tie angel

    Let us know what you end up making. Id really love to hear more about this special project.

    Just a thought, Jackie...if you don't have quite enough ties to do the project you want, consider filling in the quantity with dollar store ties. We were just there and they had a good selection. You could have your dad's personal ties front and center and use the inexpensive ones towards the back.

    Thanks to both of you ladies for the suggestions. I am sorry I have not been back here, been busy cooking for my PAC babies and tearing out my bathroom.

    I have not decided what to do with the ties just yet, but am going to do something.

    A friend of mine who quilts is going to make one of these! She is going to get ties from Goodwill. I think if you had a guy who had lots of ties, this would be a wonderful memorial! She makes memory quilts using loved ones favorite shirts. They turn out very nice!!

    I don't know what made me come here tonight and look at this forum. I still have all my dad's ties and I am sure I have enough for a quilt. Wish the picture still showed up but I will Google it. BTW, at first I didn't think I had that many ties but while cleaning out drawers I found one that was full of ties.

    This year for Christmas I gave each of my sisters a pillow that was made out of Dad's shirts.

    Thanks for the info.

    I like the memorial plaque in the middle of this one:

    Those are so pretty. I had planned on working on something this winter, to do with Dad's ties, but instead I have gotten to take care of my oldest sister that fell and broke her hip on Dec.4th and I am afraid she doesn't want to go home. I just hope I don't have her for life.

    Perhaps a quilt is something your sister might enjoy doing with you, ala a family quilting bee!

    Take care of yourself, Jackie.
