home: made [ towel loops ]
With a nod to our favourite style providers, the Scandinavians, these wooden beaded towel holders are simple to make and look great in a bathroom or kitchen.
This simple tutorial from SpoonForkBacon is easy to follow and can be adapted in size and colour depending on your interior preference. Beads and the leather straps can be ordered online from a craft supplier or there is plenty of choice on eBay, and then you just need a length of pliable wire that is slim enough to fit through the holes in the beads. The wooden beads can be dyed, varnished or stained to which ever colour suits the room.
This great project could be made large for bath towels, great in a kitchen for a tea towel or other areas in the home could look lovely as a decorative feature.

With the use of melt & pour white soap, some colouring, essential oils and a mould, you are good to go. You can pick any shape mould you like, and especially if it’s a gift you can be more adventurous. Play with colours that suit you and choose a scent you love for the perfect soap.
We have found three tutorials for you to give a go.
