Keep the One Ring to Rule them All safe on a chain around your neck.

Finally, proudly march around with hairy toes in your hobbit feet sandals!

Step 1: First: The Elvish Brooch

Carry your towel in style as a convenient cape secured with an iconic elvish brooch. Now you can free up your hands to hold a drink while you fend off foes with your sword!

Using pictures from google (shown above) I fasioned my own brooch out of sculpy oven hardening clay. I used black as the base, a green top layer, and white for the details. By using white for the details it won't be as noticable if spots get missed when it gets painted silver.

In order to turn it into a brooch, I simply stuck a large saftey pin into the clay while it was still soft (after it was fully sculpted) and made sure to bury it into the clay.

Final step was to paint the details silver, I used liquid silver leaf but any silver paint should do. I would reccommend sealing it in a clear coat to add shine and protection.

Grab your beach towel, throw it around your shoulders, and pin securely to prepare for your aquatic quest.

CONGRATS on your win!
