I made a towel holder for the kitchen. I had a yogurt lid that was begging for a project and instead of giving it to the kids, I took it.
I cut a hole in the middle of the lid, large enough for a towel to go through. I then covered it with duct tape all the way around. It would have been easier if I had had the whole width of duct tape to use, but I only had a lot of small strips, as duct tape sometimes does not come off the roll evenly.
After I was through with that, I taped a key ring onto the lid. Running the same strip of tape over and through the key ring and the towel ring.
Then I took a twisty tie and secured the key ring part to the nail in my kitchen. I had some lace, from an old fabric curtain piece, and I used it to tie a bow and also to attach it to the nail. It turned out really cute.
I love seeing it, and the towels being not on the floor! The only thing I like more is to see my kids doing crafts, which I always love to take pictures of. However, I am thinking of ways to tweak the design, to make it look more crafty. I love crafts! Here is a picture.
Blessings and have a happy Fall!

A kitchen towel hanging on the oven door handle is handy. I took one of the clips, that I cut off of a clothes hanger, and tied it to the oven handle with a piece of string. The clip holds the towel in place and it's easy to pull the towel loose if I need to.
Using a leftover shirt sleeve, I made this towel holder for my stove. Cut the sleeve in a rounded pattern at the shoulder end. Turn wrong side out and sew around that cut edge.
I had a towel on the oven rack that kept slipping out. Putting it back in was a pain, as the slot between the handle and the door wasn't very wide.
I recently got tired of opening my cabinet doors under the sink to have my hand towel fall off. I came up with a great idea. I went to Walmart and got 2 over the door coat hooks. I slipped them on the "junk drawer" (you can also use a cabinet door)and put a leftover leg support from those plastic shelf units you put together.
I needed a towel holder in my kitchen but cash was short. So I got to looking around my house for unused things that I could make one with. I found an oak toilet tissue holder that we had never used.

I am looking for some type of rod or something to put on the outside of my refrigerator door to hang my kitchen towel on. Years ago I had a rod with suction cups on either end which adhered to the door, but I haven't seen them in the longest while.
Command makes something like you describe. They call it for bathrooms, but it would work for your purposes:
Command by 3M 9" Towel Bar is the full name: Here is a linkwww.command.com/
They are not cheap, but maybe you can shop around and find one for less than 9.99.
Hope it works for you!
I found magnetic curtain rods at Bed, Bath & Beyond to use on our metal doors. (I didn't want to drill holes in the metal.) They are adjustable, and they might work on your fridge.
