Awesome craft idea spotted in the latest issue of Wondertime
: DIY necktie coffee sleeve. It's cute and stylish, yet easy for the kids to make... maybe with a little help from Mom.
Here's what you'll need:
1 stylin' necktie that dad doesn't want anymore...er, one that you're sure
dad doesn't want anymore!
1 two-inch strip of 3/4-inch self-adhesive Velcro
Here's what you do:
Step 1. Cut the tie 15 inches from the wide, pointy end. Put the thin end aside.
Step 2. Peel backing from one side of the Velcro and stick it to the underside of the tie, one inch from the point.
Step 3. Wrap the tie tightly around an empty paper coffee cup, finishing up with the pointy end on top.
Step 4. Lift up the point, peel back the remaining Velcro backing, then press the tie into place.
Allow a few hours, minimum, for the adhesive to bond before trying out your fab homemade coffee sleeve. Added bonus: it's reusable. What a cute homemade Father's Day gift!
