I LOVE all my tacky ties I buy from the thrift store. I use the fat part for purses, the end for chokers, (as inspired by other crafty gals here :-) ) and I found the middle makes for a great headband if you hem the ends and sew a piece of elastic between the two ends. People love em, and they are soooo easy to make, even if you can't sew!

If you still have some left, you can make a wrist cuff. Have fun using up every precious piece of your sweet ties!

What a great idea!  I have tons of middle sections of ties just waiting around for new lives as something or other.
