Bathroom lacking square footage? This DIY towel holder will offer crafty, space-saving charm.
We're so hung up on this DIY wooden-ring towel holder—which maximizes storage without limiting style—that we're certain you'll want to commit to one, too.
• 1 1/2-inch wide ribbon
• 3/4-inch fabric fuse tape
• Four 3-inch diameter wooden rings
• Round punch
• 3 double-cap rivets
• Rivet setter
1. Cut the ribbon into lengths of 16, 20 and 24 inches. Cut the fuse tape to the same lengths.
2. Fold in both ends of each ribbon 1/2 inch; iron.
3. Fold one ribbon in half along its length (the ribbon will be 3/4 inch wide); iron. Open up the ribbon; place the corresponding length of fuse tape inside. Fold the ribbon back in half; iron until the sides are fused. Repeat with the remaining lengths of ribbon.
4. Designate one ring as the top hanger. Feed one ribbon through the top hanger; add a second ring (to create its bottom hanger).
5. Overlap the ends of the ribbon by about 1/2 inch. (Make sure the ribbon isn't twisted.) Set the punch over the overlapped ends; hammer to create a hole.
6. Feed a rivet with the pin through the back of the hole; cap it with the plain end. Set the rivet on the anvil. Place the rivet setter over the rivet; hammer a few times to secure. Repeat with the remaining ribbons and rings.

The unfinished wooden rings are at once organic and sleek, lending a warm modern esthetic.
