Halloween Hand Towel - easy DIY for Halloween home decor

 Learn how to make a cute and super easy Hand Towel for your Halloween Decor.

Easy DIY Halloween Towel

This year has been ...  interesting with lots of ups and downs!  With all that has been going on, I can use all of the happiness I can find!  Since holiday decorating has always made me so happy, I decided to add some fun Halloween charm to my kitchen!   

When decorating a kitchen, an obvious need is a cute hand towel.  Rather than go out and buy something expensive, which is what I would normally do, I decided to make one at home. 

How to make a Halloween Hand Towel

I found some plain black hand towels at the dollar store and decided to jazz them up a bit.

I grabbed some black and white checked ribbon (non wired) and some orange pom pom trim from my ribbon stash.

I pinned the ribbon onto the bottom of the hand towel.  At the edge of the towel where the ribbon ends, I folded the ribbon over to hide the raw edge.

Then I sewed a straight stitch all the way around the ribbon on my sewing machine.  If you don't have a sewing machine, you could easily hand sew this (while you're watching the new season of Blacklist on Netflix)

Then I pinned on the pom pom fringe and using as straight stitch, sewed it at the bottom edge of the towel.  I was worried that maybe I should have used a zig zag stitch, but it came through the washer and dryer just fine!

I love the way it turned out!  It's simple but adds a fun Halloween touch to a basic hand towel!

My trusty assistant really likes the hand towel too.  I'm pretty sure she's waiting for me to turn my head so she can grab it off the towel bar and eat it!  You can see a sneak peek of other parts of my Halloween kitchen decor - post later this week!
