I started with a basic towel bar that most of us have in our bathroom already. Rather than just hanging the towels on the bar, I created this. I took two decorative towels (as you can see there is a satin detail on the edge of each of these towels). I folded the towels lengthwise into thirds. I then folded that in half from top to bottom and using a rubberband attached them over the towel bar. Then I took a coordinating color towel and again folded it lengthwise into thirds. This time I rolled it. I sat the rolled towel in the towels hanging from the bar. I used a decorative tassel and simply wrapped it around the top to cover the rubberband and let it drape down over the towels. I got my tassel either from Fortunoff or Home Depot Expo - both of which are long gone unfortunately.
Doesn't that make a better impression than having towels just folded over the bar?
If you don't have a towel bar, another cute way to display your towels when guests come over is in a basket.
I used a basket I had received from a food basket gift. I like to fold my towels in thirds and then roll them.
Let me know what you think of these ideas. Hope you will use them when you entertain this holiday season.
My fabric arrived yesterday so I'm off to start sewing. Can't wait to share with you my daughter's finished room.
Have a great weekend!
