Guest Towel Tags

Friday, March 7, 2014

If you are someone who often has a house full of guests that share a bathroom, I recently found a terrific idea that you are going to love for keeping your guests bath towels organized. It allows your guests to identify and reuse their towel, which is Earth friendly and frees you up to enjoy your guests rather than spending all your time doing laundry.

The fun part of this project is that you can customize it to your style or home or even the guests themselves. They are hanging ID tags with guest names (or initials) to be placed over the towels to identify whose towel is whose. Just make hooks available.

By using lettered beads, create a string with each guests name on it. The possibilities are endless!

Once your guests leave, hang on to the tags for their return visit. You can even display the tags on small hooks. It's fun for your guests to see who else has been to visit and reminds you of all the great times that you've had together.
This hostess (my mother-in-law, Kathie) used wooden beads on jute strings.
This would be great to use with your grandchildren. They could even help create their own tags. Using charms that represent your guests would be a fun addition.

Here are just a few of the ideas that pop into my mind to help you get started:
  • Assorted pearls
  • Sparkly bling
  • Sea shells and beach glass
  • Glass beads
  • Seed beads
The jewelry isle at any craft store is full of beautiful beads and baubles. I feel a trip to the craft store coming! 

Here's a Heart Rock for your Pocket:
I will also give that person a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to the one who receives it. Revelation 2:17

Wishing you God's best,


  1. I think this would also be perfect for my teenage kids. They don't like keeping their towels in the bathroom because the other kid might use it (insert teenage "ewww!" here). Maybe this will keep the towels off the bedroom floor!

    1. Renee, that is a great idea! Thanks so much for visiting and for your comment. Stop by and see me again!

  2. What a sweet and clever thing to make for guests! xoxo
