How to Make a Net Shower Pouf


Net shower scrubbies help you exfoliate and wash away the day’s dirty reminders, but they are sometimes rather expensive, especially if you replace them frequently to avoid mildew. It's not always convenient to run to the store for a new one. Keep a stash of tulle or netting in your craft closet, and a new pouf is never more than 10 minutes away. Keep a supply of colored poufs on hand for quick gifts and Easter basket or stocking stuffers.

Quick Gathered Pouf

Things You'll Need

  • 1/2 yard of 72-inch-wide tulle or netting

  • Scissors

  • Needle

  • Nylon thread, light cord or 1/8-inch ribbon

Step 1

Cut the net into three 6-by-72-inch strips.

Step 2

Stack the strips on top of one another.

Step 3

Run a basting stitch down the center of the stack lengthwise. Pull the thread to bunch the netting into a ball. Wrap the thread around the center two or three times before tying it with a double knot.

Step 4

Fluff your new shower pouf.
