Father's Day Fedora Wreath

Posted by T'onna Peters | Tuesday, June 10, 2014 Categories: ,

For Father's Day last year, I created a "wreath" using a fedora and ties purchased from the Dollar Tree. Since it's still in good condition, I'm presenting it to you again this year.  :-)

Originally, I planned to make a wreath using ties to hang on our front door for Father's Day.  So I went to the Dollar Tree in search of some ties, and I found them, but I also found a fedora.  My husband loves fedoras.  He has one, and he calls it his old man hat. So I decided to use the ties to make flowers to decorate the hat, and to hang the hat on the door like a wreath.

I did not know how to tie a tie, so I searched Pinterest and found a graphic with instructions.  I also glued a glitter mustache to the bottom of the tie hanging from the hat.  I found a pack of black, glittery mustaches at Wal-Mart on the wedding/party aisle. My husband really liked the mustache.  It made him laugh.

The hat didn't wouldn't lay flat on the door when I hung it from the wreath hanger, so I cut a strip of denim from some old jeans and glued in onto the hat and hung the hat on the hanger that way.

I glued a glittery mustache to the tie.
To make the flowers, I cut the large end off the tie. I will use the large portion that I cut off later to make "leaves."

I tied a knot in the end that I cut.
I folded the rest of the tie in half  and glued the sides together.
I held the end with the knot and twists and wrapped the rest of the tie around the knot and glued it in place.

Rosette done!
Remember the end of the tie that I cut off???
I folded the side that I cut to make a pointy shape like the other end of the tie and glued it.

Then I folded the piece in half and glued.

I glued the rosettes around the brim of the hat.
