How to: Make your own towel elephant

A step-by-step guide to making your own

A signature touch of P&O Cruises onboard housekeeping is the towel animal - thousands are made each day to greet passengers in their cabins.

Try making our popular towel elephant: you’ll need a full-sized towel, a face cloth and something for the eyes - stick-on googly eyes are an obvious choice but you can get creative.

How to: Make your own towel elephant

  1. 1. Lay a full-sized towel out flat
  2. 2. Roll long edges towards the centre until they meet
  3. 3. To make the elephant’s body, fold the towel over and hold it together, ensuring the centre seam is on the outside
  4. 4. To make the elephant’s head, take a face cloth and hold it loosely, as shown below
  5. 5. Loosely roll and shape the ends of the face cloth towards the centre
  6. 6. Curl and shape the face cloth to make the elephant’s trunk, as shown below
  7. 7. Place the elephant’s head on its body and accessorise
