Today I’ll be starting this series about homemade gifts you can make. Christmas isn’t always everyone’s favorite time of year because for many of us because of the added stress and expense of buying gifts. For the next 3 weeks I’ll be showing you several homemade gifts that are not only great little gifts but are easy on your budget! After I show you how to make and/or put together the gift I’ll also include a cost list for all the things you need to complete the gift!
Here’s a gift you many have seen in craft fairs or maybe you even have one already. These Dishtowel Angels are inexpensive to make and they give you a chance to be creative with the different towels and cloths you can find. Here’s how to put it together.
What you need:
- 1 Dishtowel
- 1 Washcloth
- 1 Pot Holder
Here is a picture of what you will need to make this project, potholders, dish cloths, dish towel, ribbon, and scissors.
Start by taking the dish towel and folding it accordion style.
Fold the dish towel in half.
Do the same with the dish cloth, fold it accordion style. Don’t fold in half like the dish towel though.
Scrunch together the middle of the pot holder.
Use the ribbon to tie the folded dish cloth to the scrunched pot holder.
Put the folded dish towel in the center and bring the ribbon ends (from the ribbon that you used to tie the dish cloth to the pot holder) and tie about 2 inches down from the folded center of the towel.
Bring the “arms”(dish cloth) around the front and tie with another ribbon around and inch from the ends of the dish cloth. And that’s it!

- Pot Holder: .50($1 for a 2 pack)
