Sports Themed Diaper Cake

 

This craft was featured! Woo hoo!!!

 

My cousin has been trying for years to have a baby, and finally she is getting a little man at the end of January. I myself was right where she was last year, and am so ecstatic for her. My mom and I are throwing her a sports themed baby shower on Saturday. It’s going to be pretty simple, but I thought I’d share some of it with you. I  just finished up her diaper cake this weekend…it’s the first one I’ve ever really made. But I am pretty happy with the way it turned out, and it fits the theme perfectly.
I started with a bunch if random materials, and of course, diapers.
Excuse the other mess on my table there, until I get my craft room up and running, my kitchen table is where I do most of my crafting. I had some sports baby toys, baby spoons, ribbon, socks, etc….

 

I rolled up each diaper and secured it with a rubber band. Rolling from the top down seemed to be the best method of keeping it nice and tight.

 

Then I grouped them into threes and secured those together with a rubber band.

 

Then I stacked the layers, and secured them with ribbon.

 

 

Then I added the toys, socks, etc… The top layer is secured with baby wrist rattles and a thin, red ribbon. Then I just tried to put all of the stuff on it in a way that was cute, and you could see everything.
It has some baby books that I secured with some clothespins. I thought they looked kinda baby-ish.
Then I added a little “topper” of a helmet that I found for super-cheap at Hob Lob. Overall, it’s simple, but cute. I hope she likes it. Stay tuned for some more sports themed baby shower posts after Saturday!
