Floating Necktie Organizer

Vote for this contest contender!

Upcycle your plastic bottles to make this virtually free gift for Father's Day. This is a thrifty way to organize your neckties using empty water bottle halves. You cannot see the water bottles, making a floating illusion. You can put the bottles and ties together in a circular manner to turn them into a decorative bouquet style organizer, or you can stack them in layers.

Total Time: 30 minutes

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Cut the empty water bottles in half. Reserve the tops for other uses or recycle.
  2. Dry out any moisture from the insides.
  3. Continue until you have enough for your desired organizer size.
  4. Roll your neckties very tightly from the skinny end.
  5. When you're nearing the wide end, roll right up against one side of the necktie to keep it looking tight.
  6. Stuff the rolled neckties halfway into the bottles.
  7. At this point, you can decide if you want to stack them into layers or make a bouquet. This is the layered version. If you want to glue them together, apply a bit of hot glue to the base of each water bottle, far from the inserted tie, then press together.
  8. For a bouquet organizer, place several ties together in a round. Glue bases together if desired.

It looks really cool. Are the cut edges of the bottles rough? It seems to me that it might catch on the tie material, pulling out threads over time. I want to try it with scarves and some of them are delicate. Perhaps I could wrap clear tape over the edges. Thanks for the idea!

I snipped off all the jagged bits and we squeeze the ties when we pull them out, but that's a fantastic idea to put some clear tape on them! :)
