Some time ago I saw the performer Qwestlove on the Daily Show. The first thing I noticed was his awesome bow tie: it spelled the word “wonder.” I was inspired to shop at Goodwill San Antonio to find pieces to make my own fun, quirky bow tie.
I decided to use ties to make my bowties, and I bought a clip on tie so I could reuse the clip. Next, I needed to find scrabble tiles. This proved to be impossible! After months of searching at different Goodwill stores, I finally gave up and revised my plans to use tiles from the game “Upwards.” They’re taller than Scrabble tiles but light and still help create the whimsy that I was looking for.
- Needle and thread
- Letter tiles
- Fabric glue
I liked the bow tie so much that I decided to make myself a headband version.
Would you wear a bow tie with a word on it? Try it, it’s really fun! What word would you have to share with the world?
