How to Fold a Towel Santa
Supplies Needed to Make a Towel Santa
1 red bath towel 1 skin colored hand towel
Santa hat cotton
black mittens black socks eyes
How to Fold a Towel Santa Body
Lay red bath towel out flat. Roll both ends to the middle.
Fold rolled towel in half, rolls to the outside. Pull tip ends out of each roll.
Take both tips of same roll in one hand and both tips of other roll in other hand and pull with both hands until towel rolls pull out into a body.
How to Make a Towel Santa Head
Hang skin colored hand towel on wall hook or tuck center of one long side under chin. Make sure both sides of towel hang evenly.
Roll both sides to middle, keeping them as tight and as even with each other as possible.
Set towel on flat surface with rolls on the underside. Leave just enough loose towel for ears hanging off each side at the end and roll towel from big end to small end. Tuck excess towel from ear ends into sides of rolls before the rolls get too tight for that.
Roll towel nearly to small end, then tuck small end between rolls leaving a bit of the tip sticking out for a nose.
Finishing the Towel Santa
Use safety pins to adjust the Santa hat until it fits the towel Santa head. If you can’t find a small hat, tuck part of the hat inside itself to make it smaller and pin it. If you want the hat to stand up, stuff it with some of the cotton. Set hat on the towel Santa head, pin in place if necessary. Put mittens on the arm rolls and use socks for boots on the leg rolls. Cut strips of cotton and wrap around each arm and leg for white trim on Santa’s suit. Make a cotton beard and set it on the Santa head. Place head on body. Use double stick tape to put google eyes on the towel Santa. You can make paper eyes if you don’t have googly eyes.
