A “TIE-rrific” Father’s Day
Instead of joking about the stereotypical Fathers Day Tie, why not celebrate this icon of the holiday with some of these fun Fathers Day projects and ideas?!
Father’s Day Tie Gift Bags
These gift bags are inexpensive, easy, and fun to make. Use them for Father’s Day or for a gift for another special man in your life. I just used white standard-sized paper lunch bags.

Father’s Day Tie Banner
Greet Dad Sunday morning with this fun tie banner. I made mine out of coordinating scrapbook paper. I made a pattern out of tag board, and could get three ties out of each 12×12 piece of paper. I printed out letters from the computer and used the old window-as-a-light box trick to trace them onto the scrapbook paper.
(A Cricut or similar machine would be nice, here!) I cut out the letters then glued one on to each tie. I then folded the ties over a piece of twine and stapled them to secure them. I cut bands of paper and folded them to look like the knot at the top of a tie and glued them on the backside so they would stick out a little in the front and give a bit of a 3D feel.
I’m hoping to take care of the banner and be able to use it for several Fathers’ Days. You might consider making the banner out of fabric or even old ties from thrift shop or Dad’s closet.
Fix Dad a special breakfast. Use the bottle technique I blogged about here to make tie shaped pancakes. You could make the ties Polka dotted by adding blueberries or chocolate chips, like I did to my ghost pancakes, here.
Fix Dad his favorite dinner, and dress-up the table with this great napkin fold. I found the directions here , but simplified the process by choosing not to iron the folds and letting them be a little less stiff (and much quicker).
You could take this tie thing a step further and make a tie-shaped cake, or tie shaped sugar cookies. The basic tie shape is simple enough that you could cut the shape out of the sugar cookie dough with a knife, if you don’t have a cookie cutter. I was also planning to try a tie shaped cake, utilizing one of the corners of a square or a rectangular-shaped pan to be the corner of my tie and cutting away the sides. Drizzled chocolate or white chocolate across the top of the cake would give a tie pattern that Dad would be excited to eat.
Check back at My Insanity Blog, because when I find the cool Father’s Day Tie card I made, I will post it there. Happy Father’s Day to all of the wonderful men out there who have chosen to be Dads! Let’s show them how much we love them!
