Ok - the teasing is over, here is the tutorial for the tie key chains. Anyone who has been in my craft area in the basement knows that I have a thing for ties (not a 50 shades thing, I just love the colors and patterns). I have had a bin of ties sitting around for awhile. I have experimented with various uses for them, purses, jewelry, etc. but I have never quite found the perfect thing to make out of them. Then, a friend of mine became pregnant with a little baby boy and my genius friend Adrea suggested that we do a tie theme for the shower. The perfect opportunity to force me to find a use for the ties I had been hording for the last couple of years. After thinking long and hard about what to make I decided that the first tie project would be tie key chains as favors for all the guests. Once I sat down to start making them I was very pleasantly surprised to find that they were relatively easy to make (a double bonus!).
You will need:
Handbag Hardware Latch (I got mine at Joann's)
Thread the handbag latch onto the tie.
I have made several of these for my friend's shower. Expect a couple more tie tutorials before the big day, I have lots of ideas in my head!
I think these could also be very fun for anyone who is a fan of the Fifty Shades of Grey series!!!
