Not that I needed more jewelry, but I thought these would be a fun accessory to make and wear.

My son was getting rid of some ties so I grabbed these 4 thinking there was something I could do with them.

I cut the ties down to the size I wanted for my cuff.
Mine measure 8 1/2″.

I figured out how I wanted mine to fit and how much I needed it to overlap,

Then I sewed the snaps in place.

I sewed the button to the front of the cuff, on the other side of the snap.

I layered the buttons on this one.

I think they turned out pretty cute!

Although now that I look at this one it kind of looks like a fried egg.

I’ll definitely be wearing them.
They’re kind of fun and unexpected!

What an awesome way to re-purpose ties!
I would love for you to share this with my “Unveil Your Genius” Link Party.

Happy Friday!

Definitely cute and unexpected! I must try this (by first stealing a tie from my boyfriend? haha) You should totally enter this project in Craftbaby’s ‘Upcycle Challenge’!
