Diaper wreath

IMG_2499_1

I got my inspiration from pinterest for this cute diaper wreath for the baby shower last weekend. Sometime different that the standard diaper cake, and wouldn’t require me to roll and rubber band dozens of diapers. (BTW – thanks Laura for doing that for my baby shower!)

It was pretty straight forward to make. Picked up a foam wreath from my local craft store, cute blue ribbon, and a pack of diapers.

I had newborn diapers, which made it a little more challenging because of their smaller size. If I were to do it again, I probably would use size 2 or 3 diapers.

I wrapper a diaper around the wreath, pulled tight and tied with the blue ribbon. Because of the small size of the diapers I used, I did have my husband hold the diaper on the wreath while I tied the ribbon, if you used bigger diapers, you should be able to do it by yourself.

Continue all the way around the wreath until it is covered with diapers.

Then, I trimmed the ribbon so the ends were all a uniform length.

Added a ribbon tied to the foam ring at 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock position to use to hang it up. I picked up a different ribbon with cute baby feet on it, but you could use the same ribbon you tied the diapers with.

Then, I decorated with baby toy rings and a bear teether at the bottom.

And hung it up on the front door! So cute for the baby shower. Smile

I also made my own banners.  ..

Again, super easy to make!

I just took baby boy themed scrapbook paper and cut into triangles. I alternated pattern with colors. On the color triangles, I wrote out the letters B-A-B-Y in sparkle glue.

Then, using a 3 hole punch, punched holes in each upper corner, and threaded ribbon thru the holes.

And hang!
