STEP BY STEP GUIDE TO MAKING A TOWEL ANIMAL – ELEPHANT

Hi my lovely readers!

A few months ago we looked at how to create a towel dog. Towel animals are so popular with cruises and for me they totally add to the cruise experience.

They just make you smile, they are a huge hit with kids and I always look forward to a new towel animal during my Carnival cruises.

So let’s have a look how to make a towel elephant and maybe you will give it a go as well!

Step By Step Guide To Making A Towel Animal – Elephant

What you Need

  • 1x Hand towel
  • 1x Bath towel

Step by Step Guide

First, create the body of the elephant by laying the bath towel out flat in front of you (step 1). Next, fold over the edges into the middle (step 2) and start rolling the towel from both sides (step 3) so they meet in the middle (step 4).

Then fold over your rolls, with the seam outside to create the legs of your elephant (step 5). It will look almost like you have four pillars. Now you have your legs and are ready to create the head.

Lay the hand towel flat in front of you (step 6) and fold in the top two corners a little (step 7 and 8).

Place your finger in the middle and start rolling the two edges until they meet in the middle where your finger is (step 9 and 10).

Flip your elephant’s head around (step 11) and start pulling down the front piece, pull it a little over the trunk. Adjust the ear to your liking, fold them inside out a little more and place the head on the body.

Tada there is your elephant. It should look or resemble the below image.

Stand back and admire your creation!. For the cruise fans out there, place it on your bed and pretend to be back in your cruise cabin 😉


I hope you enjoy trying to make your own towel animals!
