Daddy Hugs Neck Tie Bunting

My sister, AJ and now a frequent kite flyer, spotted this post on Craft Gossip featuring Heather of Dollar Store Crafts tie bunting and was inspired to create a Father's Day neck tie bunting for her home.  Here is her version:

The "Daddy Hugs" saying is based on Karen Katz's popular board book.  You may also have her "Mummy Hugs" book in your home library.

AJ raided both my brother-in-law and my dad's closets for old neck ties.

and cut up the ties to make the bunting.  Even the binding tape is made from ties.

The letters are cut from white fabric and adhered to the ties using heat bond.

I think it looks great and puts a number of my dad's old ties where they should be!

As always, thanks for checking in,
