Confetti: Fun with towels

Over the weekend, I attended a bridal shower for a friend who is getting married soon. It was a lovely shower with teal and pink accents. The bridal party and the hosts dressed in pink - too cute! I bought towels off her registry, and made this towel cake with them.


-Take 4 bath towels, 4 hand towels, 4 washcloths
-Roll them together and secure using fishing line on the top and bottom of each layer (you can also use pins if you prefer)
-Stick a dowel through the middle of the cake for support
-Cover the fishing line with two layers of ribbon
-Hot glue silver jewels onto the ribbon (or anything else you want)
-Thread crystal flowers through the fishing line and behind the ribbon
-Take silk flowers, cut off most of the stems and leaves with wire cutters, and stick them in between the layers of towels and on the top
-Finish it off with a pretty bow on top

This was a really fun project, although it definitely took a lot of time!

Playing with towels reminded me of this great company....Le Viette makes towels to resemble desserts, and you can use them as favors, gifts, etc...
