Thrifty Tips for December 13, 2012


Make a tie key chain.  This is a super simple craft that is really so easy, the kids can do it.  So easy I can do it.  :)  I started this tie key chain with one tie and then made some more.

What you need:

Key rings
Old ties

 1 -Take the narrow end of your tie and pull it through the key ring with the tie's seam facing down.

2 -Fold the tail of the tie (the narrow end) under so you can see the seam.

3 -Wrap the tail over the top of the tie covering the key ring.

4 -Wrap the tie around to the other side so you again see the seam and it looks like a tie's knot.

5 -Push the tail through the ring and then under and through the tie knot.

6 -Tighten the tie.

7 -Snip the end of the larger part of the tie.  You can now glue it to keep it from fraying and can also pin it with an earring stud to make a tie tack.

Seems like a great way to recycle a tie! The ties I would like to do that with have stains on the bottom, I wonder if there is a crafty way to cut off the bottom instead of the top? Free Baby Stuff
