Flower Bath Foam Scrubbies

While searching for hostess gift ideas on Pinterest, imagine my surprise to see an Eva Sponge included in a spa gift basket!

For those of you who don't know what "eva" means in the crafting world - they're referring to those "foam sheets" you find in the kiddie section of craft stores! Yep, that's right, foam sheets! I've made lots of crafts using foam sheets so I knew right away I could easily make something like this!

Let's begin by creating a a template of petals. Draw a large petal first and copy that five times next to each other and then draw a smaller one to copy five times, combining all the petals into a strip.

Next, use the ball point tip of a pen that doesn't work to outline the petals on the foam sheets. Use the entire length of the sheet (18") and outline three rows to cut out.

Once the rows of petals are cut out, it's time to make the hanging rope by braiding four strands of 15" white twine. Tie the braided ends together in a loop, cutting off excess twine.

For the scrubbie, place the strips of foam petals on top of each other, staggering the pieces so that the longer length end is on the outside, then the next length and the shortest on top. You might need to cut off a couple of petals. The hanging rope goes on top of the smaller petals. You want the smaller petals in the center of the scrubbie after rolling . Begin rolling the foam sheets together starting with the smaller petals. Be sure to roll tight while keeping the edges straight.

Once you've reached the end, hold tight while wrapping a large, thin rubber band around about a 1/4 inch away from the edge

as many times as you can for tightness and to hold the foam in place.

Next, tie a strand of white twine as tight as you can over the rubber band, tying two or three knots to secure. Then cut off the rubber band.

Also, cut off the excess twine close to the tied knots.

Fluff the outside petals out and it's done! Easy peasy, right!

How cute is this for bath or shower! And great for gift giving, too!
