This project came to life after my mom and I made my older sister’s diaper cake . It was such a fun project, and since I was left with a lot of left over diapers, and I mean A LOT!, I wanted to do something more. I think I counted about 58 diapers left over from that project. Instead of wrapping them all up plainly, I wanted to do something clever with some. So, onto Pinterest I went! <–I love Pinterest! There, I stumbled upon a fun idea…a diaper wreath! I can do that! So, this is my version of a diaper wreath and how to assemble one.
This project took me no time at all, a touch over an hour.
How to Assemble a Diaper Wreath
What you’ll need:
25 newborn sized diapers -any size should work, the larger the diaper the less you’ll need
20 or so rubber bands
Curling ribbon to cover the elastics
1 wreath form- I bought this twig form at the dollar store!
Decor- I used 3 yards wide satin ribbon and 1 character bath mit.
But the theme possibilities are endless. The ideas I saw on Pinterest were as decorated as the diaper cake, but for this I wanted it to be simple, clean and sweet.
Next time someone in my life is having a baby, I am going to make them a diaper project gift. What a clever idea!
