Can You Have Your Cake and Eat It Too?

Not if you get one of these!
It's a diaper cake! How is everybody doing? It has been another busy week but it's winding down! So going back to some old crafty projects, this is one I made a few years ago for a close friend who was having a baby boy. It's very easy! Just follow the simple steps below for the baby celebrating fun!

Supplies

  • card board cake bottom
  • paper lace doily
  • a few skinny long wooden dowel rods
  • rubberbands
  • a regular pack of diapers - I buy them size 2 or 3 so they are bigger and take up more room and the new parents can enjoy the centerpiece for a little while.
  • Ribbon - I used 2 rolls of wide ribbon from Wal-Mart and polka dotted from a craft store.
  • Some sort of useful topper or items to hang off the ribbon
Roll the diapers and rubberband them, making three layers. Carefully put it together placing the dowel rods thru each layer to hold the layers together and finish with ribbon. You can do so many things with this. Be creative!

It makes for a great conversation piece, whether a centerpiece or gift for any new mommy!


Have a great weekend!
