Sweet Wreath Baby

Last weekend I was invited to a baby shower.
I brought a wreath for the baby---fun yet practical.
This is what I used:

Wreath Form
Diapers
Bibs and Baby Toy (optional and changeable)
Ribbon
Clear Elastic Bands OR a Helpful Extra Finger
First open each diaper and wrap
around the wreath form.
Then tie a ribbon around each.
If you don't have an extra helpful finger,
you could secure the diaper first with an elastic.
I choose to use the finger belonging to my
fourteen year old son. After all, it made the
creating process much more fun to listen to
a teenage boy complain about having to
touch girly ribbon and baby diapers.
Be sure to skoosh the diapers together and
add on enough to completely cover the wreath form.
Next tie on toys, bibs or whatever you choose.Finish with a pretty bow.Then be prepared to hear the
ooohs and aaahs
from the new mommy and shower guests.

Very cute and creative! I may just have to try this idea out. I have a diaper baby shower to go to in a few weeks and this would be perfect. Thanks for sharing. :)

What a really lovely idea! We don't usually have 'baby showers' in the UK but it would make a really lovely gift. Only problem...I don't know anyone that's expecting!

What a fun idea. Looks much simpler than one of those diaper cakes. I'll have to keep this in mind for a shower gift idea. Thanks for sharing your creativeness.
