This DIY diaper wreath is so easy and cute! I am typically a practical gift giver, but rather than just give something practical, like a box of baby diapers, at a baby shower, I love to get creative!! Practical is good, but practical and super cute is even better! What better gift than a box of diapers transformed into a super cute gift like a diaper wreath!?
And guess what!? My sister is pregnant with her first baby so I am finally going to be an auntie and I had a baby shower to get to!
And!?!? She’s having a girl so I’m going to go a little crazy with the girly stuff after having three boys of my own. I probably would have had to make a snail or something out of diapers if she was having a boy so I’m thankful that we’re expecting a little Lily.
I guess I am a practical gift giver because I’m also on a budget. Being on a budget and being practical does not have to mean plain and simple and lower quality, and that’s why I started this blog… Because while I am on a strict budget, I don’t want to have to give anything up. Not quality and not quantity.
The wreath and butterfly were so stinking cute that we used them as decorations at the baby shower. I put the butterfly on the lower shelf and the wreath sitting on chair next to the tables. So girly and so perfect.
Love that wreath? That super cute, practical, and budget friendly wreath, I mean?
Here the instructions to make one of of your own. It is very easy and you can get away with spending right about $30-35 for the entire wreath.
The part that can vary in cost is the goodies that you choose to tie to the wreath. They can be as costly, or as budget friendly as you want. As many, or as few as you want too. Just be sure to go with bright colors. I, personally, think that a plain diaper wreath could be cute too if you use some colorful ribbons.
- 18″ Wire wreath frame ($3.99 at Michael’s)
- Various brightly colored accessories to decorate the wreath – toys, onesies, pacifiers, bibs, washcloths, teethers, lotions…
Step 1: Start with a wire wreath frame.
Step 2: Place wreath wire between front and back of diaper.
Step 3: Gather a ribbon to tie diaper to wreath wire and tie a knot around the diaper.
Make sure the open diaper end is facing outside the wreath circle like so.
Step 4: Continue tying diapers on the wreath frame until the wreath is fully covered.
Step 6: Tie accessories to wreath with ribbon and voila you have a complete diaper wreath.
