I don’t know about everyone else, but chances are anyone with kids probably has dish towels ending up on the ground 99% of the time. My kids wash their hands, dry them and promptly throw the towel on the ground as they go back to playing. I needed an immediate solution and I’m happy to let you know that I found it! With some heavy duty snaps and scrap leather, I was able to make a DIY kitchen towel holder – no more coming off the towel rack or oven handle. It was the best (and easiest) solution that only requires 5-10 minutes of time. Your kids might even have fun trying to take the towel off the rack!
Supplies needed to make your own DIY Kitchen Towel Holder:
Step 1. Start by wrapping a measuring tape around your towel while it’s hanging on the rack or oven. Next, cut your leather by that length with a width of 1-1/2″ or wider. It’s your personal preference.
Step 2. Using the leather punch tools, punch holes into both ends of leather.
Step 3. Insert snaps into the leather following the instructions on the packaging. Make sure you select the different ends that are needed to snap together in the right place on either side of leather.
And that’s it! You are ready to go hang your towels! Such an easy solution to a frustrating problem. These DIY kitchen towel hangers would also make great gifts to family members or friends who have kids. They’re quick to make and look really cute. If you want, you could even sew some fabric up and use fabric instead of leather. Also, faux leather works for this project as well. Leather comes in all different colors so pick a color that matches your bathroom or kitchen – the good news is there are lots of options!
