How to Decorate a Tie for Dad


Buying Dad a tie for Father's Day is practically an American tradition. Instead of buying Dad another forgettable piece of neck wear, decorate one for him to make it special. You can start a new tradition in which Dad wears his decorated tie for Father's Day every year. Kids can decorate a tie using many types of craft items. Dad will love a custom tie that was personalized just for him.

  • Cotton tie
  • Newspaper
  • Fabric paint
