Tie One on For Dad

With Father’s Day this month my daughter and I tried to come up with a craft idea that the number No. 1 man in our lives can use and enjoy. When we looked through his closet we noticed he has way too many ties! At that point we knew exactly what he needed …a tie rack! This is a fun project you and your little one can create for Father’s Day that can be enjoyed every day. Surprise your father, brother, hubby, grandpa or best guy friend this Father’s Day with a DIY tie rack created with love. Most items can be found at your local craft store. I would love to see your finished Quick Craft. If you create this craft or any of the crafts featured in the DIY Quick Craft feature, please take a picture and email it to me at jhodges@cawlm.com. Happy crafting! Supplies
