So one day I decided to clean out the center console in my car (after around 4 years of putting that off) and I happened upon a tuxedo bow tie. I have absolutely no recollection of how that got there, or even of the last time someone in a tuxedo was in my car, so I figured it was fair game. Before throwing it away, I remembered something my super crafty and talented friend Jessie had done with a bow tie and decided to follow suit and make a necklace out of it!
I would love to have a great DIY tutorial post for you, but really your guess is as good as mine as to how to create this thing. I just bought a long enough chain, and a friend of mine suggested I sew it to the back of the bow tie, which I also looped back and forth a couple of times to get it to the desired length. If you saw the back of the necklace, you would be sad. So I guarantee you too can make this necklace, and probably better than me! (How cute would it be with a sweet patterned bow that's either vintage or Anthro or something??) I'm excited to try it over a bright, casual tank or t-shirt for another fun look!

Hope your weekends were fancy and fabulous! Mine was full of sand and sunshine and sleeping in tents. It was pretty awesome :) I know I sound like a broken record, but dang it I love where I live. So, so thankful. Happy Monday my friends!
