Oh Baby: How To Make A Diaper Cake
If you have a baby shower coming up and you want a practical, cute and creative gift idea, try this super cute diaper cake! These are always a hit at baby showers! Just follow these easy steps to make your own.
One of my friends recently had a baby shower and I made her a diaper cake. Since this is her 4th child, instead of spending extra money on little toys to embellish the “cake” I decided to spend money on a fancy cake stand she can use later for entertaining instead.
I am a visual learner so I took a ton of pictures for this post. 😉
I started with a large cake stand and placed 3 boxes of Desitin in the center.
Next I placed a thick rubber band around the boxes.
Rolled up a newborn diaper, secured it with a small rubber band and placed the rolled diaper between the large rubber band and box of Desitin.
Added another diaper…
And another until I had surrounded the Desitin boxes with rolled diapers.
I then placed another large rubber band around the first layer of diapers…
And added a second row of rolled diapers.
For the second layer I placed another large rubber band towards the top of the Desitin boxes and added more diapers until the boxes were surrounded.
I then used a hot glue gun to secure a bottle of Johnson’s Natural’s Body to the top of the boxes. I added a large rubber band around the bottle and added more diapers.
After all 3 layers were complete I tied pink curling ribbon around the rubber bands to hide them.
Woo Hoo… Finished at last!
