Hey you guys! Have you ever seen a diaper cake before? Diaper cakes are the best because they kill two birds with one stone – they’re the perfect centerpiece and decoration for a baby shower, and then the diapers are a great gift because babies require A TON OF DIAPERS. I have always liked them in theory, but a lot of them have seemed very cheesy to me. Not that there is anything wrong with that, it’s just not my style. So I set out to make a more elegant version of the diaper cake and I’m sharing the tutorial with y’all today in a video!
Here is what you’ll need:
55 Huggies Diapers
Small rubber bands
Glue dots or strong double-sided tape
Paper towel roll (just the inside cardboard part)
White tulle ribbon
Assorted ribbon or trim (gold is encouraged for the ‘classy & elegant’ factor!)
Watch this quick video for the tutorial!
So, it’s pretty simple. I had coupons for the Huggies, so those were a great deal! I am of the opinion that the cake should be made from good quality diapers so that they’re useful and won’t just sit in the closet. Go for the Huggies!
The real difficulty is choosing your embellishments. I seriously scored with the gold sequin and faux leather trim from the craft store! They weren’t very cheap initially, I think like $7 per yard, but I got to use 40% off coupons on both of them so it wasn’t too bad after that.
Stuff like this is my absolute favorite. I love any reason to celebrate, and every baby is special and deserves to be celebrated. Follow the #CelebrateFamilyValues campaign on Facebook and Twitter for more ideas on celebrating all of the important moments in life!
