Create a Necktie Wreath for Quick Decor

Makes a Treasured Memory Gift, Too!

Create a beautiful wreath from a collection of old ties for your door or wall. This is a great gift idea for a man in your life, too, perhaps to hang in an office or den.





Many quilters use ties in memory quilts, however you may want to consider making a memory wreath instead. This project will use fewer ties, and there may be enough for more than one wreath.

Ties can be found in thrift stores, and maybe even in the back of a closet. As you’re collecting ties, think in terms of color combinations. Ties are available to create wreaths for any season. For example, the following wreath is great for the summer and for patriotic holidays. Keep an eye out for theme ties to add interest to your wreath.

These wreaths are very easy to make. We’ve seen them constructed with styrofoam, straw and even wire wreath forms. The following video shows you how they go together. Once you have the wreath form, use pins and a hot glue gun to affix the ties.

Kathy at MishMash Mom provides a written tutorial with more specific instructions. She inserts a piece of cardboard into the end of each tie to keep the tie points from flopping.
