DIY Embellished Hand Towel Tutorial
Embellished Hand Towel Supplies Needed:
- Hand towel
- ½” ribbon or fabric strip
- buttons or other small embellishments such as rhinestones or shells
- hot glue gun
DIY Embellished Hand Towel Directions:
Choose a hand towel in a color to coordinate with your space- I was able to pick this one up for just $2.00 and it is pretty thick and lush.
Open folded towel completely, find the “bottom front” side of your towel. Measure ribbon by spreading it out across the bottom and cutting it even with the finished edges of towel.
Fold your towel up as if it is ready to hang, find the front. Lay out your buttons or other embellishment items to find a pattern you like, then secure them down with glue, allow to dry for 2-3 minutes.
Your embellished hand towel is now ready to hang and enjoy! It should only need to be dusted off, if it does need to be washed you should be able to hand wash, hang to dry and hit the non embellished areas with an iron to crisp it up a bit. I hope you have fun with this craft to create an embellished hand towel to perfectly match your decor. You can also make holiday themed embellished towels as fun DIY gifts for others.
