This holiday, Glade®® is helping me deck the halls and dress my home. Scents are so helpful with evoking a Holiday spirit in our home and Glade® has some wonderful scents out that are sure to deliver surprising bursts of joy. As a hostess I love to complete the experience of any Holiday by adding special touches around my house.

This tutorial is for your towels! The magic is in the details and nice looking towels make your bathroom so welcoming. You can dress them up with ribbons or brooches. Play around with color combinations and different folding techniques. I don’t expect anyone to use the decorative towels so remember to have clean towels available for guests to use.

You’ll need:

2 Bath Towels

2 Hand Towels

Burlap Ribbon or ribbon of choice

Tying ribbon

Silk Flower or brooch

Push Pin

Don’t be afraid to get creative with colors and textures.

  • Start by laying out a bath towel
  • Fold in each side to the middle of the towel
  • Overlap the second side a few inches
  • Run your hands over the folds to press them flat

Once all 4 of your towels are folded this way start draping them over your towel hanger. Layer your towels large to small. Since we are only using 2 sizes just place your folded hand towels over the bath towels. Decide which decorations you want on your towels and set them aside.

  • Knot the burlap ribbon around the towels. Make sure it’s tight enough, but not too tight.
  • Now cut a new piece about 20-25 inches long
  • Overlap the cut sides and pinch it all together
  • Use another type of ribbon to tie the middle of the burlap and fluff out the sides to create a bow. I used some red ribbon because it fit with the Holiday theme

Now all you have to do is tie your ribbon onto the knot around your towels. If you have silk flowers or another type of decoration you can now tie it with the same ribbon. There is no need to double knot anything unless you are using really silky satin ribbon. I bought these gold berries to compliment mine.

Once you are done with both towels adjust the height if necessary. Then use your push pins in the back to keep the ribbon in place. Over time they will slowly slip down so don’t forget this step.

Now add the other finishing touches to your bathroom. I set out a Glade®  3.4 oz. Small Jar Candle. I also plugged in some Glade®  PlugIns®  Scented Oil Warmer. I love that the Glade® 3.4 oz. Small Jar Candle has 2 scents in one jar. Also look for the Shazam logo on in-store displays. This will lead to Spotify playlists, video content, giveaways, etc. I found a wide variety of scents and delivery forms in my local HEB.
