Flower Bath Foam Scrubbies

By: Gail Griffin
Flower Bath Foam Scrubbies

"While searching for hostess gift ideas, 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! Heck, yeah!"

Primary TechniqueGeneral Crafts


Materials List

  • Foam Sheets - 12" x 18"
  • White twine
  • Scissors
  • Rubber Band (large, thin)
  • Skewer stick
  • Flower template


  1. Begin by creating a template of petals. I drew a larger petal first and copied that five times next to each other and then drew a smaller one to copy five times, combining all the petals into a strip. The larger petal is 2 1/4" tall x 1 1/4" wide and the smaller one is half that width.

  2. Next, use the tip of a wood skewer to outline the petals on the foam sheets. I used the entire length of the sheets (18") and outlined three rows to cut out.

  3. Once the rows of petals are cut out, it's time to make the hanging rope by braiding four strands of 15" white twine.

  4. Once the twine is braided, tie the braided ends together in a loop, cutting off excess twine.

  5. To make 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.

  6. Begin rolling the foam sheets together starting with the smaller petals. Be sure to roll tight while keeping the edges straight. The strips are staggered near the end as you roll.

  7. 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.

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

  9. Push the outside petals down and out and it's done!

NotesHow cute is this for bath or shower! And great as a gift, too!
