Tie to Belt Tutorial

Turn a tie into a belt? What?!?!
Can I just say, this is fabulous for so many reasons.

1. Ties come in all sorts of fun fabrics {except perhaps Great Uncle Alberts Christmas mice}
2. You can find them cheap {like $.99 at thrift stores} or FREE {just don’t let the hubs catch you}
3. Wide belts are so IN and cute.
