This project came from having two sons, two nephews who all asked for gifts they could use on "adventures". Through in a pair of inexpensive binoculars, and you have hours of imaginative fun!
- old tie (s)
- hot glue gun
- stuffing from an old pillow
- googly eyes
- red felt
- un-sharpened pencil and marker
TIP: At the smaller end, do not over stuff end and even leave the end empty to make gluing easier. At larger end leave room to refold side of tie to original triangle shape. A marker is good for ends to, but the pencils gets the stuffing to middle of tie better without breaking seams.
3. Decorate. Glue googly eyes and red felt tongue to the large end of tie. If you are giving to girl you could even add some yarn hair or felt bow:) I am thinking if I find a pink tie at the thrift store that my niece may be getting one of these next year:)
