It is quite interesting to make use of the clothes that are kept unused in our household. Among them, towels are much prominent. There are many towels in your house that are not used, or their usage has been finished. We can easily prepare a towel swan with them. For this reason, today we are going to exhibit the step-by-step process of making a towel swan, this is a DIY technique that will be beneficial for the beginners.


For this process, the first thing that we should do is to choose a suitable towel. The towel size should not be much bigger, and it is better to take rectangular bath towels. They are much useful in this case, and you will get the ample opportunity to fold them properly. So we start by taking a bath towel and then lay the cloth on a flat surface. The flat surface is necessary for the process because this will allow you to fold the towel proportionately.

Then we have to grab the top two corners of the towel and fold in such a pattern that the two edges merge at a point inwards. In this manner, there will be a common point for the two corners to meet at the towel. Now we have two side ages. These side ages will be the next step to perform. We have to roll those inwards. Both the side ages are folded inwards to achieve the symmetric shape, and they will also meet at a common point of the towel.

Then the towel will take the shape of an arrow, and then you will fold the apex of the arrow to a “Z” shaped fabric, which will act as the beak of the swan. Now we have press the beak down and then squeeze the corners. This will give a proper shape to the swan. In this way, the swan will be prepared using a towel. The last step of this process is to provide total rigid elements to the fold so that they do not unfold. For this, we can use tapes or adhesives.
