This gift is not only perfect to hang on the dining room wall as you enjoy your Father's Day lunch or dinner, it's great to hang on his work office door as well. There's no better way to show your dad you love him than with this gift he can show off to his work buddies!

What you'll need:

  • 1 premade yarn wreath (use this tutorial)
  • Block letters spelling Dad
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Tie
  • Buttons

Cut the tie and attach it to the wreath

Measure the length of the tie on the wreath so you know where to cut. Then cut from the top (with enough overhang so you can wrap it behind the wreath).

Cut tie.

Glue the tie to the top of the wreath and hold it down so it sticks.
