Men's Silk Tie Rose Pin

Raid your husband's closet for silk ties he no longer wears and create beautiful silk rose pins from them. You can also purchase them for $1.00 each at Goodwill. Wear them on a blazer, pin on a tote bag or purse, or use to embellish a pillow. The possibilities are endless!


Approximate Time: About 30 minutes


  • silk tie
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • bar pin
  • ruler
  • scissors


  1. Beginning at the narrow end of the tie, begin rolling it up, adding a drop of hot glue as you roll. You will want to roll it up about 10-12 inches (that's where the ruler comes in) to create the center of the rose.

  2. Then begin twisting the tie, applying a little glue about every 1.5 inches, and forming it around the center. Your rose will begin to take shape.


  3. Once the flower appears to be the size you want it, trim off the excess leaving about 2 inches to fold to the back. This creates a nice, smooth backing.

  4. Glue down the portion that is folded back, then glue on your pin back. I have also used the entire tie to create a larger flower which I pinned on a pillow (see photo). As you can see, I left the pointed end sticking out from it.

That is so neat. I have been collecting ties for years. I plan to use some for chair bottoms and quilts.

My dad passed away a few years ago and I saved his ties. Now I know what to do with them. I'll make these for my daughter and I.


I'd like to add something of my mother's such as some kind of jewelry. I have her handkerchiefs also that I could make something with but what? Thanks for sharing. Bobbie
