Now that the 4th of July is over stores are going to start clearing out the Summer items to make room for Back to School– can you believe it?!  Anyway, that works out PERFECTLY for us because beach towels will hit the clearance shelves with plenty of time to make these adorable things with them and still have time to use them while the weather is warm!  Are you ready to see all the things you can make with a beach towel?!
