More preparation for Fosters upcoming first birthday! In my efforts to create the opportunity for some fun pictures at his first birthday celebration, I've been thinking 'what will he wear?'. I've decided to go with a little guy tie.. I've seen some adooorrrable baby and toddler ties available to buy online and such, but not willing to pay the price, I'm making my own :)
So here's what I did, step by step to make my very own, 'Little Guy Tie'.
Get yourself a tie. This one was one of hubby's old ones. It has a stain on the front, but you'll never see that part once it's turned into the little guy tie. A thrift store would also be a great place to look.
these instructions. I did a basic 'four in hand' knot.
Alternatively, you could use a button or hook as a fastener for the tie collar. (PS, I wish I had black velcro on hand when I did this!)
The best part? It didn't cost me a penny!
