Today, I want to show you this super easy bow tie DIY that triples as decor, fun photo booth props and party favors for your guests (re: hair pins/brooches).

Behold, how to make bow tie pins!

Like all good things in life, this project idea came about from procrastination. I had a fabric swatch book laying around, as we’ve been trying to decide on drapes for about five months now. While we’re no closer to a decision, I thought Hey those little fabric swatches sure could make cute bow ties.
