  • Adorable Towel Elephant Baby Shower Idea

    These baby washcloth elephants are absolutely adorable and perfect for baby showers! They're also pretty easy to put together!
    It's remarkably simple to transform baby washcloths into adorable elephants, perfect for adorning packages, sitting atop diaper cakes, or as an inexpensive gift on their own. The washcloths are not damaged in any way, so they can simply be unfolded and used once given as a gift.

    To start you'll need 2 baby washcloths per elephant that you wish to make. We recommend using the organic bamboo baby washcloths, they work great.
