Handmade, personalized neckties are a great accessory and an awesome gift. Traditional fabric ties are a bit complicated to make, but this DIY leather version is easy, customizable, and requires no sewing! I made these two ties in about 6 hours, and I didn't even have this excellent Instructable to guide me.
To give the ties their unique look, I stamped them with ordinary objects I found in our shop, in this case I literally used nuts and bolts. I really liked taking these objects out of their usual context and using them to create interesting textures. You could use any number of different objects to make your ties unique and personalized, and figuring out what will make a good stamp is half the fun.
