- face cloths
- pipe cleaner
I made these decorative soap holders for my daughter's shower. Kind of resembles a purse.
- Start with two different colored face cloths. Place white in middle rolled in together.
- Then roll blue ones outside of the white ones and form a pocket for the white face cloths inside.
- Place a ribbon to hold the face cloths together The prettier and fancier, the better.
- Place a pipe cleaner inside around the middle and under the tops and that will look like a handle.
- Decorate, have fun and enjoy. The bar of soap will fit right inside the purse!
