Diaper Wreath

 I've made many a diaper cake many a time.  I have about 13,456 examples of them on my blog.  Here's a tutorial....OK...maybe five or six, but that's still a lot.  Recently, some friends at work threw a Diaper Party for a gal at works second baby.  How cute are these invites?
Sarah and Amber told me they found a free template online. 
 Complete with a 'stamp.' 
 My team was assigned size three.  I knew they were planning on making a cake for the shower, and I wanted to do something fun.  A few years back I remember someone giving the mother-to-be a diaper wreath.  I decided to get it a go.  This is actually even easier than a cake.  It would be fun at the entrance to a party or  welcome to a new baby. 
I grabbed a foam wreath from the dollar store. 

 I wrapped the diapers around the wreath and tied them to it (a rubber band would work too). 
 I overlapped the diapers (about 14) so no wreath would show beneath. 
 I bought a bunch of little odds and ends (teething rings, baby products etc) for diaper toting moms, and these little Sneaky Feet at a boutique.  I was originally going for green and blue, but after I found these, I just went with bright colors. 
 I tied the socks and toys to the wreath, alternating sizes, and items. 
I added a tag.  Usually, I'd add a bow, but I thought the larger frog ring did a good job of tying it all together. 
It was a fun way to deliver a package of diapers.

Adorable! I am going to a diaper shower next Sat. I am going to attempt to make a tricycle?! If the tricycle fails I am going to do this, thanks for sharing.

Oh and can I pin this on pinterest?

Diaper wreaths are my favorite thing to give. They are especially nice to hang for Mom when she returns home from the hospital, it's just a great thing to go with the welcome baby sign. The fact that they are SO much easier than the cake makes it even more fun. I use a hair tie around each diaper, then mom gets a bonus, and let's face it those first few months you'll need them, lol.

That's a really cute idea! I'm going to use that some day!
