Diaper Cake

Dr. A asked me if I could make a "Diaper Cake" for her dil's upcoming baby shower. I have never done this before and did some research on line. The first version I found was so complicated I actually had dreams about goofing it up. No kidding.
Then I found a great tutorial on You Tube. It involves simply rolling the diapers into 'candlesticks' and securing them with clear hair elastics. Then you place them around an inner form created by a baby bottle. (Actually, it's two baby bottles on tpp of each other. 
You are supposed to use a giant rubber band to secure the large rounds of diapers. But that would have meant hitting Staples right before school starts. No thanks...
I used thin pink ribbon to tie the 'layers' together on the bottom. Then I used baby hair bands for the top layers.
The baby bottle was sticking out of the top, so I just wrapped it with two diapers. 
I have only added 2 pacifiers for decorations. I want to get some rosettes and some more little baby doodads for more decorations. I'll put either a little stuffed animal or a pair of booties on the top.
All in all, I don't think it was a bad first try!

  1. That's really adorable! Hi, I'm Paulette from the blog Beedeebabee. I've been away from blogland for a while preparing for a construction project about to begin on our home, but I saw that you had stopped by my blog and left a sweet comment, so I wanted to come by and say "hi!". I see you're a fellow Long Islander as well. Glad you made it through Irene okay...we were without power for 6 days.
    After 2 days we got a generator so we could at least take hot showers! Nice to meet you, and I'm glad you found your ferret! Enjoy your week!
