Anyways, my typical go-to baby shower gift has always been a no-roll diaper cake. I like giving diaper cakes because they are fun and festive, yet practical. My no-roll variety is especially easy to assemble. I've written about them before, but in case you missed it, my no-roll diaper cake tutorial can be found by clicking HERE.
However, this time around I felt like doing something different. So in addition to my registry gift, I assembled this sweet baby blue diaper wreath for the mother to be. Here's how I made it.
1/8 yard lightweight fabric
small package of diapers
Step 1: Decide wether or not you want to display the colored waistband portion of the diaper. A white wreath like mine requires diapers to be face down.
Step 2: Begin wrapping the diapers around the wreath form. This will be easier if you can make your diapers narrower, by refolding or squishing together. Tie tulle or ribbon around each diaper to secure in place. I found it easiest to work from both sides at the same time.
Step 3: For the sash, I used a white Paint Sharpie to write Welcome Baby on a strip of lightweight fabric. Using pipe cleaner instead of floral wire, I was aiming for a bendable wire wreath banner similar to THIS one from Uncommon Designs. However, a number of mishaps led to this wrap around variant, which I still like, even if it wasn't my initial plan.
