Craft Foxes shares a tutorial telling how to make a flower boutonniere out of an old necktie. They work equally well for men to wear on a suit, or for women to wear as a brooch. This is a great project to repurpose a tie that is stained in places. Or, honor a departed father or grandfather at a wedding by making a set of boutonnieres for a from his old ties. Go to Craft Foxes for the how-to.
