With Father’s Day right around the corner and school letting out, this is a perfect opportunity to entertain them with an activity as well as create a tie craft for the upcoming holiday.
Simpler is always better and if it is a no glue keepsake gift with washable markers, well that is a WIN WIN for Mom.
If you are looking for a summer project and a gift to create for DAD, today I am sharing how my daughter put together an easy Father’s Day Photo Tie Craft.
If you would like to create this fun tie craft with your kids, here is what you will need:
Round Sticky Magnets
Printed Family Photo
Tip: You can find most of these items at your local dollar store or craft store.
To get started with the Father’s Day Photo Tie Craft, in advance order or print a 4X6 photo of your child or children.
Next, take a ruler and pencil to draw a tie shape on the card stock paper.
I made this easier with a printable template, get it here: Download The Printable Tie Template. This will then need to be cut out.
Then, it is time to get creative with the washable markers. My daughter came up with a unique design for her creation using patterns with squiggle lines, dots, along with a rainbow of colors.

Her tie turned out to be a one of a kind beautiful piece of artwork.
Next, we added 2 sticky magnets to the back of the clothes pin so the tie could be added to a refrigerator or metal file cabinet.
Tip: We also used a hole punch at the top and tied on a piece of twine, so the craft could be hung up on a nail or hook.
It was then time to add the stickers to the center of her creation to spell out DAD. Finally, the craft was completed by using the clothes pin (AKA Tie Clip) to place the photo on the tie.
Her Father’s Day Photo Tie Craft was then ready to be gifted and my husband was excited to take it to work.
As you can tell, this is an easy activity that gives children an opportunity to get creative as well as gives DAD a special photo frame to have at work or home.
I hope our creation inspires a handmade gift this holiday, and I wish your family a Happy Father’s Day.
