This past weekend I went to a sprinkle for a friend who is about to have her third boy! We wanted to celebrate and make her feel special……and although I wanted to get her something practical (what mom does not need diapers)? I also wanted it be be a little more special then just a boring box of diapers. In the past I’ve played around with making a diaper ‘masterpiece’ and often my well intentioned diaper elephant creation ended up looking like a lopsided cow. So…..I decided to keep it simple and focus on the details to make is cute!
This diaper wreath was pretty simple, but has the wow factor too! I was able to create it the night before her sprinkle while watching TV in about an hour. It is easy to customize for girls, boys or neutral theme.
Here is what you will need:
- Package of diapers (I bought the smallest package….37 diapers and still had several leftover).
- Floral foam wreath. I got mine at Micheal’s.
- Curling ribbon. In whatever colors you want. I picked white and light blue.
- Small baby items (pacifiers, travel size shampoo, lotion, rattles……you pick)!
First make sure you use the side of the diaper facing up that is mostly white. For mine (Target brand) it is the backside, so I flipped them over. Cut a long piece of ribbon- at least two feet. You want enough to curl it. Tie the ribbon around the diaper and wreath as shown below. I am alternating white and blue.
As your wreath gets more full, push the diapers closer together so it will be full when finished.
Once all of the diapers are on, start adding your fun baby items you picked out! Just use another piece of curling ribbon and tie around the desired diaper.
Once this is done I pushed the white ribbon diapers to the back and brought up the blue ribbon diapers to the front and fluffed them out to make it full-looking. Now you can curl all of the ribbon!
And you are done! Everyone will love this adorable and practical gift!
