What’s more iconic than giving dad a necktie on Father’s Day? Well, here are 10 Father’s Day necktie ideas that are bit of a departure from that tradition. Now you can set a tie-themed table, make a tie-shaped greeting card, wrap dad’s gift in a tie-themed gift bag, then serve a cake decorated like a necktie. Dad will have so much fun at his party he might even “tie one on”.
If you’re having a Father’s Day dinner, fold your napkins into a shirt and tie combo. The necktie can be made from a paper napkin with instructions from U Can Do Stuff.
To fold a napkin into a dress shirt, follow the tutorial from How About Orange. This is really fun if you like origami, especially since there are only six steps!
This necktie napkin fold from Clever Parties Blog doubles as a utensil holder. I especially like their sample done with a striped napkin.
Here’s another Father’s Day card idea, this time with a bow tie. Over at Crafty Morning, Michelle turned a bag of M&Ms into a bow tie using a simple ribbon. This would be an easy craft for young kids.
Here’s another very quick and easy Father’s Day card made with a regular letter-sized envelope. Holly from Bits of Everything even provides a free template for the paper necktie. Insert a Hershey’s bar into the envelope and you have a card and gift all in one.
Do you want to fill a goodie bag with treats for dad? Little Family Fun shows you how to turn a paper bag into a cute shirt and tie combo.
Little Family Fun also provides instructions for making a shirt and tie Father’s Day card. I love the idea of using checked scrapbook paper to make a gingham shirt.
Wrap up your dad’s gift with a ribbon tied into the shape of a necktie by following the tutorial provided by Good Housekeeping. They even have video instructions.
I found a ton of Father’s Day cakes in the shape of a shirt and tie, but nearly all of them were way beyond my cake-decorating abilities. Luckily, I found this adorable cake from Where Do We Find The Time that’s quite do-able. All you need is a tube of icing and M&Ms to decorate the cake. What dad wouldn’t love this cake?
I hope you try a couple of these Father’s Day necktie ideas. Heck, you could even use them for a young man’s graduation party. The crafts are fun, fast, and easy – just the way I like them. Make dad feel special on his big day by giving him some necktie-themed love.
