7 creative ways to recycle your old ties this summer

Ties are often viewed as items with few practical uses. Originally intended to hold button less shirts together many working professionals find that they are over run with ties bought as Christmas and birthday presents. 

Whether you have fallen out of love with your necktie or their style has fallen out of fashion, finding different uses for old ties that are no longer worn can be challenging. Keep reading for some of the best ways to find new uses for your old printed ties.

Make a handy Phone Pouch 

If you are struggling to find the right pouch for your phone then perhaps getting creative with your old neckties could be the perfect option. All you’ll need is a fastener and some basic stitching skills and you’re good to go.  

Create a colourful belt 

If like many you have way too many ties and not enough belts then perhaps repurposing neckties into stylish belts could help you out. 

Using a simple hook and eye fixture on your old printed ties and a few stitches will allow you to turn that old paisley tie into a statement piece of a belt. 

Make a printed tie cuff bracelet 

If you are looking to cut down on your old printed ties and increase your accessories then you could try creating beautiful cuff bracelets. Simply fold the tie over and secure in place with a button. This is a great way to add some colour to your summer outfits. 

Get creative with a tie headband 

The different styles of patterned ties available could help you create an array of stylish headbands for you or your partner. This is one of the easiest ways to repurpose your old printed ties.

Make a Colourful Rug

If a room in your house lacks that wow factor then why not take some never to be worn again printed ties and make rug? This can work as both a living room talking point and as a colourful way to welcome people into your home as a doormat. 

Create pillows with interesting designs 

If you are looking to add a dash of colour to your living room or bedroom then why not try using the old collection of your neckties and stitch them onto some plain pillows. This allows you to get creative and provides a good talking point when you have visitors.
