Diaper Wreath

Diaper cakes and diaper tricycles have been pretty popular at baby showers recently. However, when I first saw a Diaper Wreath at my friend’s house recently, I thought it was adorable! What a great gift to help a family announce a baby’s new birth by hanging it on their hospital room door, on a front door at home, and even in a baby’s nursery. The wreath was very easy to personalize to fit a nursery theme or color scheme. 

Materials: 

  • Thick poster board
  • Pencil
  • Sissors
  • Small package of diapers
  • Ribbon
  • Baby toys/items to decorate the wreath
  • Hot glue gun

Directions: 

1. First trace the desired wreath size you want on a thick poster board with a pencil. (I used another wreath I had laying around to trace for the size I wanted.)

2. Cut out your “wreath” from the poster board.

3. Using one diaper at a time, open the diaper, slide it onto the wreath with the tops facing away from the center. Then tie a ribbon about an inch from the top to secure the diaper in place. (You can slide the diapers together as you go, to cover the entire wreath. *Note: I used Pampers diapers because they are completely white except for the characters at the top, this way I could face the character side toward the backside of the wreath.

4. When you are finished you can secure a few baby toys or items onto the wreath with extra ribbon. *Note: To make the wreath more personalized, you can also buy letters or alphabet blocks to decorate the wreath as well. I would recommend securing these letters or letter blocks with hot glue.

  1. This is such a great idea. I pinned this one to my Party ideas board on Pinterest. Love it!

    Enjoy your week!

  4. I love this SO much — it’s such a cute idea! I featured it at my Favorite Finds Friday :)

  5. How cute is that?! A great idea for any baby shower. I especially love that monkey though! Thanks for sharing at oopsey daisy!

  6. I absolutely love this idea! I make a lot of diaper cakes for friends’ showers, but this is such a unique twist. I love it!

    I might try it using pipe insulator tube from Lowes (the 97 cent type) as a wreath form. This would avoid snagging the diapers on the rough cardboard edges.

    Super Cute!!!

    • @ Shelby,
      I’m so glad you liked the idea. Please let me know how it goes with making one with insulator tube, I’ve never thought of that and it might work well! I saw one with styrofoam but that is hard to find in the size I wanted and much more expensive. You mentioned the snagging aspect of the thick posterboard but I really haven’t had any issue with that if you buy and use Premium diapers on the wreath. Keep me posted, I’m excited to see how your’s turns out! :)

  7. Great idea – I will give it a try the next baby shower I attend. Thanks for sharing :)

  8. Very cute and unique idea. I am pinning it!

  9. I love this!! It’s so fun and clever. Love how easy it was to attach the diapers to the poster board…it looks so fabulous. Can’t wait to pin this one! Would be delighted for you to link up with us at Mop It Up Mondays (going on all week): http://www.ishouldbemoppingthefloor.com/2012/04/mop-it-up-mondays-11.html.
