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.
- Thick poster board
- Small package of diapers
- Baby toys/items to decorate the wreath
- Hot glue gun
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.
