It’s mid-week and I’m already exhausted enough to throw in the towel and have a five day weekend (who’s with me?)! But that’s why I’m extra excited about today’s post, because it’s all about relaxation, taking time for yourself, and being crafty. It’s time to moisturize and learn how to make a beautiful, DIY spa day bouquet.
My BFF and I have been wanting to do a spa day for a long time now, but going to an actual spa just too pricy. So, I wanted to surprised her with a spa day kit with a fun DIY touch. These washcloth roses, loofah flowers, and Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer are the perfect things to have in this kit! Why Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer? Because, while winter may be most known for skiing and riding snow mobiles, it’s also known for something much less exciting—dry skin. This moisturizer is totally bomb, because it absorbs twice as fast as regular lotion, and locks in the moisture on your skin while its wet (how cool is that)!
But, let’s get to the tutorials, shall we?
Find Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer at your local Walmart.

How to Make the Roses
1. Fold the washcloth in half diagonally. Starting from the bottom corner, roll until 3-4 inches from the end.
2. Going in the same direction, wrap final few inches of material around and fold slightly.
3. Fold the bottom portion up so that it’s about an inch above the top.
4. Secure your rose bud by unrolling each end tightly around the center spiral—beginning with the left side, then the right.
5. Fold back top petals if desired.
6. Next, cut approximately 2 feet of floral wire (or desired length). Fold in half. Wrap in floral tape all the way down, and make a little curve at one end.
7. Cut out your leaves. Score and shape them if desired. Attach them to the wire using small pieces of floral tape.
8. Insert bent end of wire into the bottom of the rose bud, and admire your handiwork!
I know this looks like a lot of steps, but once you get it down, you’ll be whipping these puppies out in no time at all!
How to Make the Loofah Flowers
1. Begin by cutting a long piece of floral wire (approximately 4 feet), and wrapping it in floral tape all the way down.
2. Tightly wrap the wire around the loofah; then, twist the extra wire together to make a sturdier stem.
3. Cut out your leaves. Score and shape them if desired. Attach them to the wire using small pieces of floral tape. Admire your handiwork!
I just love these pretty blooms! What better way to combat winter than with awesome moisturizer and flowers?
The great thing about these flowers is that you can implement them in all sorts of ways: gifts for a friend, Mother’s Day, baby showers, or even give them out as favors at your very own “Spa Day Party.” What will you be doing with your spa-themed blooms?
