The day after Thanksgiving, I'm co-hosting a close friends baby shower at my Dad's home. Amongst other things, I'm in charge of the decorations. This past Sunday, I got a head start on a few things.
One of the cute decorating ideas I came up with was diaper babies. I'm sure other people have done this before too, but I haven't seen them at any shower I've been at, so I'm giving myself bonus points for creativity!
These are super simple to make. Just take diapers, roll them up, and put a rubber band around them.
Then take newborn sized clothing, shove the rolled up diapers in the leg holes, arm holes, and body, and then add flat diapers to the bottom area. Here are a rough draft of the two I did, not really exactly positioned just right yet :
What do you think? Do you think they're cute or do you think they look like dead babies (as my ever so morbid husband claims)? I think I'm going to put them on end tables or maybe even a cake platter for decorating. Then the Mom and Dad to be get to take home their diaper baby and keep the clothing and diapers. Dual purpose gift...decorating and practical...just my style!
Happy Hump Day!
