How to make a Towel Swan (Tutorial)

The towel swan is one of the easiest towel animals to create.

I like to make two and place them nose to nose on our guest bed whenever a couple comes to visit.

You will need:

  • 1 bath towel or sheet
  • Sunglasses (optional)

Step 1:

Lay out the bath towel horizontally then fold the top two corners down to meet at the center

Step 2: Press the diagonal folds flat then roll the towel tightly along the diagonal edge. It’s easiest to do this one side at a time.

Step 3: Once both diagonal sides are tightly rolled, flip the shape over

Step 4: Bend the rolled point to form a curved neck. Use a lot of pressure (sit on it if you have to!) so it will stay positioned.

Step 5: Twist and “fluff” the tail to create the illusion of wings.

Enjoy your new feathered friend!

If you’re only making one you might want to add sunglasses for a fun effect. If you are making two, place them nose-to-nose for an elegant look. Want more towel animal tutorials?
