Diaper Wreath


My daughter, Olivia (be sure to check out her blog), made this to enter in the county fair in a couple weeks. It will go in the category, Wreath, Non-Christmas. I thought I'd post a simple tutorial about it. :o)

Items Needed:
A Wreath
(you can get these at the dollar store
or watch for after season clearance and buy a few)
Most anything you'd put in a gift basket
use your imagination!!!
Ribbon
Diapers
(disposables are used here, you could use cloth also)

Use ribbon to tie diapers on wreath.
Wouldn't it look nice with cloth diapers tied on with raffia?

Be sure to cover all of the wreath.

Tie on all of your items.

There you have it!
Olivia used a receiving blanket that I made for the 'bow'.

An option:
Cloth diapers, using raffia, crochet booties, a knitted blanket...

Another option:
Instead of using diapers, use baby t-shirts...

Another option:
Tie on scrap booking items...

Another option:
First Aid items

Be creative...

I've seen these before, but your's looks much fuller. If I was the mom, I'd hate to take it apart to use the items! Are you supposed to use them or is it mainly for decoration? It's adorable! The diaper cakes are cute too.

Do what you like with it! :o) You are suppose to take it apart and use it.

Thank you for your encouragement!

I think she is going to make some different ones and see if she can sell them. Wouldn't these make a nice alternative to the big bows that people buy to put on their hospital door?

Great idea! Thank you so much for the info! I will most likely make one for my sister-in-law who is having a baby in October!

That is FABULOUS! That would be lovely for a shower, too!

My daughter got one of these at her shower. There's a picture of her with it on my blog under baby showers!! Thanks for showing how to make one. This is something I'd like to do.
