DIY Project Chevron Painted Ties – Make your next event a little more DIY dapper with this chevron painted necktie tutorial that Lynzie from Love by Lynzie shared here.
If you are looking for something unique and out of the box for groomsmen, here is the option…you can try these amazing chevron painted ties for your groomsmen. But then it is very difficult to find chevron ties in the same color theme as that of the wedding. So here you can DIY these ties. You can arrange a small tie coloring party for your girls. Or can ask the groom and his guys to attempt this new look over a beer or two.
- Plain colored men’s tie
- Painters tape
- Your choice of paint colors (we used latex paint samples by Martha Stewart and CIL)
HOW TO MAKE IT
STEP 1: On a clean surface, lay down some newspaper and Place your tie on top.
STEP 2: Using painter’s tape, cut strips to the desired width of your chevron pattern and place over the tie securing the edges of the tape to the surface so the tie doesn’t move. Continue this until your pattern is completely laid out with tape on the tie.
STEP 3: Using your paintbrush, paint the spaces of the tie between the tape. here we have used shades of coral, blush, ivory, grey, and black.
STEP 4: Let the tie sit to dry for one hour at least before removing the tape.
STEP 5: Remove the tape. Using a clean, small edging brush, touch up any edges freehand where the paint has bled away from the pattern. Let dry.
STEP 6: Pair with your fave button up or tie it on your man. This is also a super fun way to incorporate wedding colors into groomsmen’s attire.
These steps you can easily follow for a polka dot, striped, plaid, or checked pattern.
