Diaper Wreath

Pin It Now!

A very cute and easy gift and decoration for a baby shower!

For the base, I used a sturdy foam circle that I bought at Michael's.

You will also need a pack of diapers - I used white newborn ones.

To secure diapers around the foam wreath, I used rubber bands - I chose a pack with just the natural-colored bands.

Here's what it looks like when the first layer is done.

I overlapped the diapers so none of the green foam could be seen.

Finished product hanging up at the baby shower, which was decorated in a brown/blue theme.

Other helpful hints: I used 10 items to fill the wreath, and I tied all of them to the wreath with thin blue ribbon.  Items used: pacifiers, socks, lovey, rattle, Burt's bees diaper cream, teething ring, onesies, and one of those nose suckers. :)

Before I secured all of the baby items, I wrapped the wreath in brown ribbon with blue polka dots.

A little difficult to see in the pictures, but as a finishing touch, I tied small strips of blue and brown ribbon to the rubber bands at the ends of the diapers.

I was so excited with the way it turned out.  It totally worked for me!

Very Cute and great idea. I am going to a baby shower in a few weeks. I think I may have to borrow your idea here. :)
