Everyone seems to have baby showers to go to, and no one wants to give a boring gift! One of the most popular gifts you see going around Pinterest is a diaper cake, but how do you actually make one?
Turns out it isn't that hard and we will show you exactly how to do it! They are super fun to make because it is easy to add extra little things that a parent might want or need, while also turning it into a really cool display for the shower!
- Diapers - A LOT of them
- Rubber bands
- Thin Ribbon/String
- Thick decorative ribbon
- Baby toys/socks/baby items that you can add on
Start by rolling a single diaper into a small roll.
Wrap a rubber band around the roll
Then start wrapping the diapers around it. Use a frying fan or cake pan to get an estimate of size and just keep wrapping more and more together until it gets to the size you want.
Add rubber bands if it starts to get loose to keep it all secure.
Once you have reached the size you want, use your string or ribbon to secure all the diapers together.
Either tie your decorative ribbon or secure the ends with hot glue around the diaper cake.
Repeat the process with a smaller size layer and place it on top.
Once more with the smallest layer to make it a triple layer cake. once all your layers are set, start sticking the toys and baby items in the cake using either the ribbon to secure them or tuck them into the diapers themselves.
These diaper cakes are quite beautiful and the new parents will appreciate it so much!
