Necktie Snakes

Create your own stuffed, scaly reptile that your child can slither around the house. This Necktie Snake craft will allow you to make use of old (or possibly ugly!) neckties in a fun and creative way.


  • Necktie
  • Cushion filling
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Felt
  • Craft glue
  • Googly eyes


  1. Stuff the necktie with filling. Use a pencil or ruler to push the filling all the way to the end of the tie.
  2. Cut felt into the shape of a tongue, about one inch long.
  3. Glue the tongue and googly eyes to the head of the snake (where the tie is widest).
  4. Tie knots at the tail end of the tie to resemble rattles.
