DIY Beach Towel Ideas

DIY Beach Towel Ideas

It’s Summer time, which means it’s time to go to the beach… or the pool!  This time of year I often reflect on the times our family would spend a week in Nags Head, North Carolina. We did it every year for a good five or six years. I would spend hours playing in the sand or swimming in the ocean.  I had no fear and no wave was big enough. I have no idea when or how it happened, but now I’m completely afraid to go in the water! I’ll gladly go to the beaches here in Southern California, however now I’m content sitting on my beach towel blanket and soaking in the sun.

Here are three creative Summer craft ideas for your beach towels, a beach tote blanket, a beach towel mat with handles, and a cute towel sarong. Click on the link for full DIY instructions.

Beach Tote Blanket

This beach blanket tote by Ready Made holds all your sun block, sunglasses, books and magazines and cleaverly unwraps into a beach blanket.

DIY Beach Towel Blanket with Mat

An inexpensive DIY tote made out of one bath towel and two hand towels. Use colored or patterned prints to match your beach gear.

Beach Towel Sarong

A great way to repurpose an old towel.  Embellish it with ribbon and buttons. Make mini sarongs for the kids or make his and hers for the shower and bathroom.
