Christmas Tree Skirt from Neckties


This Christmas tree skirt is from Chicago Lost and Found. It was made from up-cycled neckties. They are for sale for $1,200 and some of the proceeds go to educational outreach. You can read more on the website. That striped binding looks beautiful, but I bet it's pretty tricky to sew!

Thank you to nurse Jessi at Rusty Nail Farm for the heads up about this item!

Those are gorgeous! The price tag is more than my budget will bear, even for such a good cause, but oh, how I wish it wasn't! Thank you for sharing this amazingly beautiful piece of art.

That's so pretty! My husband never had any ties that looked like those. I kept his ties for years and years, thinking I would make something with them. They finally went to a friend who immediately made a very clever purse with them. "... another man's treasure."
