Materials Needed:

  • solid-colored bath towels
  • fabric ribbon (non-wired)
  • measuring tape or ruler
  • scissors
  • washable fabric glue (available at most fabric stores)

Choose Towels

It's best to choose towels that already have a band across them, as shown in the image below. Measure the width of the band to determine what size ribbon to use.

Select Ribbon

Choose a spool of ribbon that coordinates with the bathroom's color scheme.

Smooth It Out

Using both hands, smooth out the towel so there aren't any ripples.
