Craft a Snake Tie for Dad

by Marie on June 9, 2009

Is the Dad in your life tired of getting a boring old tie every year for Father’s Day? Well, I snazzed up this Father’s Day tie, crafting it into something new, a snake. He may not be able to wear it, but he might be happy about that.

Fathers Day Crafty Tie Snake

Supplies for Snake Tie:

  • Tie – old used tie or one from the thrift store
  • stuffing – poly-fil craft stuffing
  • pencil, or long stick of some sort
  • hot glue gun (for adult use)
  • red felt
  • 2 googley eyes

Snake Tie Supplies

1- Brake off a small chunk of stuffing and place it down the hole of one of the sides of the tie. I started with the small end. Then using your pencil or long stick, push down the stuffing as far as you can.

2- Try to get at least half way down, then do the same for the other opening of the tie. Then fill and repeat until your whole tie is stuffed.

3- Once your tie is all stuffed ( kinda looking like it’s eaten a mouse!), then you’ll want to hot glue each end closed. Be careful with the hot glue, it’s hot and can burn.

4- Then cut out a tongue for the snake from the red felt. Ours has a fork tongue. Now hot glue the bottom end to the inside of the snakes mouth, or the bigger end of the tie.

5- Time for the eyes. Hot glue your 2 googley eyes to the top of the snake, or the top of the big area of the tie.

Now it’s ready to be given to a Dad! Hopefully this is one tie that he’ll be happy to get. Happy Father’s Day!
