Tie One On! Upcycled and Repurposed Neckties



As all clothes do, neckties go in and out of style over time, so they are often donated to goodwill shops or given away to friends or family who might find a use for them. Other times, we may find ourselves the inheritor of ties when a loved one passes on. 

What do you do with those ties? Why not upcycle them into something brand new or create a unique memory craft in honor of a loved one? Check out this collection of ties that have been upcycled into unique, new items.
