If you have an adult male in your home, you are bound to have a huge array of ties. And if it is anything like at my house, I'll bet that many of those ties go unworn year after year! Don't let those old ties go to waste - instead, create a quick, easy, and adorable snake for your child's stuffed animal collection!
Once the hot glue is dry, you can coil your snake! My daughter coils hers around her bedpost and it is a great conversation starter when she has friends sleep over!
Additional Ideas: Add dried beans to the tail instead of fiberfill to create a "rattle" snake!

I love the angel. I have my father's ties and I'm making one for several family members for a remembrance of our father.

I like the snake. Wish I had thought of it when my sons were little. They would have loved it.

Say that was kind of neat.
But the head of the snake was way to large
Should have more body 4-5 inches be on the neck,
or try putting it in a differen't pose.
I still think it was cute.
