    Pattern

Instructions:

  1. Trace bathtub pattern onto foam block. Wax serrated knife with candle stub or paraffin and cut out tub. Sand rough edges with scrap foam.
     
  2. Follow manufacturer's instructions to apply two coats Smooth Finish Paint to tub and foam letters; let dry. Dry brush tub and letter edges with light tan; let dry. Note: To dry brush, dip very tips of paintbrush bristles into paint, then remove excess paint onto paper towel before lightly "scrubbing" across foam surface.
     
  3. Using photo as a guide, cut out desired label motifs for letters. Follow manufacturer's instructions to apply labels to foam using decoupage medium; let dry.
     
  4. Use gold paint pen to color tub feet and to write "5¢" on tub side; dot each letter end with two gold "rivets."
     
  5. Glue beads to top tub rim to look like soap bubbles. Let dry completely.
     
  6. Attach foam shapes to tile using double-sided or hook-and-loop tape; for other surfaces, press shapes onto small nails to hang.
