Father’s Day Craft – Tie Tack from a Screw

I don’t know about you, but I always have a hard time coming up with gifts for men.  Since Father’s Day is coming up, I came up with a fun Father’s Day craft to make for a dad that likes to be handy.  It’s a tie tack made from an actual screw, which is pretty cool.  It looks like the screw is going through the tie.  Fun!

Supplies needed:

Dremel Tool Craft

Use the Dremel Tool to cut the head off the screw.  This will make a lot of heat and sparks, so be sure to wear safety goggles and gloves, and make sure there is nothing flammable around.  I recommend putting the base of the screw in a clamp while cutting.

Try to get as close to the head of the screw as you can and get as clean of a cut as possible.

Put the screw head, top down, on the table and put a blob of glue on it.  Wait for the glue to get a little tacky, and then push the back of the tie tack into the glue.  If the back of your screw is a little uneven, do your best to keep it straight until the glue dries a little.  Adjust it to make it straight, and then you can add more glue around it with a toothpick.

Wait for it to dry completely, and you’re done!  It’s a pretty easy Father’s Day craft once you get past the power tool part.  You can always ask Dad to help you with it, just don’t tell him what it’s for. 🙂
