Necktie Pillow for Father's Day at Mom Spark

This coming Father’s Day is going to be really hard for me and I’ve been having quite a  bit of difficulty getting into the spirit. You see, Poppa, my grandfather died on Father’s Day last year. I spoke to him on the phone in the morning to wish him a happy day and was woken up by screaming about the same time the next morning.

I’ve been trying so hard to come up with fantastic Father’s Day presents, but I just haven’t been feeling it. I tried working out some really neat resin paperweights but they were CRAFT FAILS. Yep, all caps. I used up an entire large tin of resin $24, ruined a paperweight mold $12, and $10 worth of Legos and $6 worth of astroturf. That’s $52 of failure right there.

In fact, one of the paperweights is somewhere in the half acre that is my fenced in backyard. I should probably get out there and find it before it’s time to mow. Wouldn’t that be a surprise to hit with the riding mower!

But this necktie pillow project came together and it came out really well. After a weekend of failed crafty attempts, it was really nice to get something made that mostly turned out just the way I had planned and hoped.

So, if I haven’t totally depressed you too much (eek! sorry), head on over to Mom Spark to see how to make a Necktie Pillow for Father’s Day upcycling old and unworn neckties or using new matchy, matchy ones.
