  • Download templates of ties and bowties
  • Trace onto thick cardboard or cardstock to serve as templates
  • Use templates to make ties and bowties on colored paper

  • Glue on string by placing a little glue on the back of dotted line and folding over the string
  • For looped tie:
    • start by gluing first the tie top to the main tie.

    • Continue attaching loop to tie and so on.

Thank you for these great ideas for Fathers Day. I am always thinking/ looking for something for the men to do on this day. This year Fathers Day will be special. Thank you for your help.
