Diaper Cake - Baby Shower Part 1

 
 
 
 
We had another baby shower over the weekend.
That's right another shower ,
but different niece.
 
My sister will go from not being a grandma to
being the Grandma of 2 in the matter of a month !
She is BEYOND excited !
 
So anyway...
being the awesome Aunt I am,
I had another shower.
With the help of Emily and Sarah of course.
 
On Friday when we were supposed to be cleaning and decorating,
( had to get the Halloween down and Fall up )
but we were  having cocktails and cruising Pinterest for ideas instead.
 
I had made "cupcakes" out of onesies and receiving blankets for Spencer's shower,
( which I forgot to take pictures of )
and I wanted to make something different for Jenna.
 
Sooo...
we were drinking these yummy cocktails and cruising Pinterest,
( so many great ideas  )
and we decided to make a diaper cake.
 
In my day  ( long , long ago ) they made them out of cloth diapers
but I knew someone had to have made one out of disposable diapers,
and guess what ?
A LOT of people did .
So many cute ideas and two basic ways to make them.
 
We picked the method we thought would be easiest and fastest.
And it was.
I think we had this cute little guy whipped up in under 30 minutes.
 
The little monster head on top is actually a hat.
Em and I think the hat is what totally made the cake.
 
 
 
The "recipe" we used called for 40 diapers.
That's what we got but we didn't use that many.
Ours was a 2 layer Diaper Cake.
Of course , I didn't take any " in progress" pictures ,
but you can find a video on the basic method we used HERE.
We did not , however , use anything as a support in the middle.
I really don't think it was necessary.
 
 
But as with everything ,
 I changed it up a bit.
We rolled receiving blankets around the diapers and secured them with safety pins,
then we tied tulle around the whole thing.
We attached the monsters feet ( booties ) to the diapers with safety pins also.
We attached teething rings with tulle to the sides and made bows to look like his arms.
 
 
There are so many ways you can switch this up .
But I am so thrilled with how it turned out ,
 I hope I have an opportunity to make another one.
 
Stay tuned for Baby Shower Part 2.
I made the most AMAZING cupcakes !
I'll be sharing those soon.

  3. Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to understand a lot about
    this, such as you wrote the book in it or something.

  5. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming
    having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
