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.
How to Make Dishtowel Angels
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. I picked up everything I needed at the local dollar store for $3 and I already have some scraps of ribbon on hand. *Note, I used a bright ribbon so you can see it easily in the pictures. You may want to use something that matches better. 🙂
Start by taking the dish towel and folding it accordion style.
Fold the dish towel in half.
Do the same with the washcloth, 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 washcloth 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!
This is such a cute way to give someone some little kitchen or bathroom towels and it’s so easy to put together. You could make it as a stand alone gift or as part of a gift basket. It would fit very nicely into a housewarming or wedding gift basket!
