This is a masculine take on a Christmas door wreath. My father-in-law is in Assisted Living. All the ladies have holiday decorations on their doors. I thought this would be cute for the gentleman's look.

Approximate Time: 1 hour

Supplies:

Instructions:

Take about 15 - 20 clean ties, according to how big the wreath frame is. Cut them 12-13 inches long. Measure from the wide end.

TieWreath2_150x112.jpg Lay the frame back side down. You will be working from the front. Wrap the tie around the wire. Be sure the wide point is facing towards the outside of the wreath. Pull it tight enough so it lays straight but does not wrinkle. After you position the tie where it should be, lift it up and put your glue on the layer underneath the wide end as in picture #2.

TieWreath3_150x112.jpgAfter the first one is done (picture #3), Do the next one and overlap the edge of the 2nd one. Keep going in the same direction all around the frame overlapping edges just a little. You can slide the ties closer together as you get to the end and might need more room for the last one.

TieWreath4_150x112.jpgAs you look on the back (picture #4) you can see they are each rolled into nice compact tight rolls. This way they will not roll around on the frame. You can sew each edge together on the back, if you wish. I did not.

Take a slimmer tie and tie in a bow to accent the wreath. Hang on the door using a wreath hanger.

That's awesome! Now I have something to make for the men! They are the hardest to shop for! I have always collected ties at yard sales for cheap, never knowing what to do with them! THANKS!

That is really a unique idea. I don't have anyone at the present time to give this to but will store it in my head. Thanks

I adore this idea! I have a neighbor who is so kind to me with things I need help with and often shares a yummy meal he's made on the weekends ... He has no Christmas wreath so I am going to make one for him :-) Unfortunately it will be belated for this Christmas but I know he'll love it and hang it each Christmas hereafter :-) Actually, with his cute and funny personality, I'll venture to bet he'll hang it immediately and leave it all year long ;-)

Thanks for sharing and I personally think this craft is a winner ;-)
