Still looking for a fun Father’s Day gift idea? Look no further! These cute Father’s Day Tie Treats are perfect AND super easy to put together. My Father’s Day Tie Treats have been a very popular post over the years (originally posted June 2010), and today I am freshening it up a little bit.
When I was thinking of ideas to hand out to the Fathers on Father’s day, I definitely wanted to give them a treat. Because what man doesn’t like to eat? At first I thought of filling a clear plastic glove with some kind of treat and coming up with a poem about a Father’s Hands. But no such luck there. Then I remembered a few years ago, the Primary made Candy Necklaces for the Mothers on Mother’s Day. I thought ‘How could I make a tie candy necklace?’ That’s when I came up with these.
Father's Day Gift Ideas for kids
All you need for this fun ‘tie’ themed treat are a few items, and in no time you will have yourself some cute candy filled ties to give to the special guy in your life. These would be great for small children to do too, so include your children, grandchildren, neighbors, anyone!
And don’t forget the adorable Father’s Day card that I printed out from Teepee Girl! Isn’t it perfect! She has two card options to choose from, you can see them HERE!


Father’s Day Tie Treats

Ready to get started? Here is what you will need to create your very own Father’s Day Tie Treats!

Father's Day Gift Ideas

You will need clear cellophane baggies. When I originally did this I think my bags were skinnier and I don’t think they had the expandable sides, but I used what I had and they turned out great.

You will also need some type of treat to fill your bags, tie knots (printable below), string, tape, and my Father’s Day Tie Treat tag (printable below).


To begin, grab your clear bags and the tape. To give your bag a tie shape, you will need to fold the bottom corners of the bag. Just take both bottom corner and fold them until they meet in the middle. Then add a piece of tape. And that’s it!

Father's Day Treat Idea

Now it’s time to fill those bags! I grabbed some taffy at the store, and thought it would be perfect for this project. But you could add any favorite treat of your choice.

Once you have filled it up, tie the top with some string.

Father's Day Treat

I didn’t fill mine all the way to the top. I just added a few, tied it off and then trimmed the left over with scissors. Trimming the left over bag at the top will help the ‘tie knot’ to adhere better.

I also experimented a little with the bags that I had. Since they had the expandable sides, the ‘ties’ looked much wider. On one of the ‘ties’ I added a piece of tape onto the side of the bag, so the side couldn’t expand. Here’s a picture of one with the tape on the sides, and one without.

I guess one of them also has more taffy. If you can find the skinnier bags, I recommend using them, but if not, the other bags work just as well. 🙂

Now, you can dress up your tie by adding the tie knot! Print out my ‘Tie Knot’ printable, and cut them out. You could also cut out your own tie knots using some fun colored/patterned yardstick. One thing I did notice…I should have flattened the bottom of my tie knots. 🙂 At least that’s what I did before. But that’s an easy fix. Once you have your tie knots cut out, attach them to the tops of the bags using more tape or glue.

Father's Day Gift Ideas for kids


To go along with your Father’s Day Tie Treats, I came up with a cute little note that you could attach to each tie. Here is what the tags look like. There are 6 tags per sheet. I also included a tag without the ‘Dad’ just in case you’d like to use these fun treats for a Grandpa, Uncle or friend. Use the link below to print my Tie Knots and the Tie Tags.

    I like this too! I just bought some blow-pops and am going with the “I love you POP” theme but I will have to remember this for next year!!

    Very cute idea!!! Thank you…I will be using it for all the dad’s in our ward! I got smaller bags but I am sure the will still have plenty of candy. I got “FROOTIE” tootsie roll candies in light blue, dark blue and brown. Hopefully they look like ties 🙂

    Anonymous- I’m so glad you liked the idea. I can’t wait to see your pictures! 🙂

    Lisa- The smaller bags will be fine, I actually had to cut all of mine to be shorter anyway. And I know yours will look great. I ended up using Jolly Ranchers and Starbursts for our Dads. Let me know how they turn out.

    Susan- Thanks for the sweet comment. I’m so glad you liked the idea.

    Devyn- Thanks! I didn’t even know I was being featured on there. I don’t currently have a FB page, but I’ve thought about it. If I do start one up I will Post about it and let everyone know. Also, Thanks for the Shout out on your blog. I love how you added the little doodles to the note. Thanks again!!

    Mama Wisch- Thank you so much for your sweet comment. I really love doing this blog, and my favorite is reading all the comments that people leave. Thanks for reading, I’m so glad you like it.

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We used your idea today for Sharing Time and it was a hit! The kids loved making them and the dad’s loved eating them!

    Perfect! I am using these for a Young Women’s Lesson about the priesthood. I couldn’t think of anything cute to go with it until I found these. It’s cute, it has candy, and a tie totally represents priesthood. Thank you!

    Sherbees: I found my bags at my local craft store. Anything like Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, etc. Hope this helps. 🙂

    Travis & Joann: Thanks for the nice comment. What a great idea to use these as YW’s handouts.

    I was wondering if you know the size (width and height) of the cellophane bags you used? Also, did the ones you used have the “pleat” down the sides?

  11. Amanda Baggett

    Wonderful Idea! I got this off of pinterest and we are making it in children’s church for our Father’s Day Gift!!! Thank you..

  12. Sheena

    Allison- I’m not sure the exact size, but I’m guessing they were around 6X2″. I actually used 2 different types: some without the pleat and some with the pleat.
    I liked the ones without the pleat better, but they both worked great. Hope this helps. 🙂

    Amanda: Thanks for the comment, glad you like the idea. 🙂

    I love the idea for having the kids give them to the men without kids too. In our ward we have lots of men who are away from their families, this would definitely help them on their day

    Such a cute idea! I ended up just buying the bags at Wal Mart since I was there, but if I am to make them again I will definitely go buy the non pleated ones that are skinnier and taller. My husband had to ask me what they were. 🙂
