Diaper Wreath

If you are looking for a fun and unique baby shower gift I have an idea for you! Every new mommy needs a festive wreath to hang on her hospital room door. This is a great way to announce a brand new bundle of joy! Furthermore, new parents NEVER have enough diapers!
My crafty friend Sandra was so sweet to surprise me with one when Owen was born! I decided to try it out and make one for my cousin Chassati when she welcomed baby Anaiah into her arms last week :)

Materials needed:

foam wreath
25+ diapers (I used size 2)
clear hair rubber bands

curling ribbon (2 colors)
tulle (optional)
Cardboard letters (to spell name)
main (bigger) toy or stuffed animal
small baby items (the lighter the better!)

Open each diaper and wrap it around the wreath with its open flap facing outward. Scrunch diapers together. Wrap one clear rubber band around each diaper. **I use size 2 so that the wreath can be used to decorate the nursery for a little while :) You might not use exactly 25 diapers...could be more and could be less!**
Next, tie one of each color ribbon around the rubber bands. Curl as you go:

Place your main toy (or stuffed animal) in the bottom middle. Then, take into consideration all of the small baby items you have to include in the wreath. Get an idea of where you wish to place these things so that the display looks symmetrical. Travel size bath products work really well. If the mommy registered you might take into account some small items remaining on her list! Bibs, spoons, tiny shoes and washcloths work well. Onesies and other items can be much too heavy. Secure the items with ribbon (I found tulle to work better on some items).

I like to put the baby's first name on the very top to give it a personal touch!. These cardboard letters come in all colors!


  1. I love it!!! What a great idea.

  2. Adorable! You put mine to shame.

  3. How neat! I'm going to have to make one of those.
