Make a Diaper Wreath – Baby Shower Idea

How to Make a Diaper Wreath!

The finished Diaper Wreath

Are you going to a baby shower and you want to give her something that is a little different? Or are you planning one for someone and maybe you don’t want to do a diaper cake? Try a diaper wreath! A what? Yes, a wreath! Its really easy and just different enough to make her smile.

So, here we go!

How to Make a Diaper Wreath

What You’ll Need:

  • Wire Hanger
  • Count 96 diapers (I used newborn size)
  • Rubber Bands
  • Decorations (like toys or pacifiers, or ribbon)

First things first, get that wire hanger into the shape of a wreath. Its pretty simple, just pull down on the bottom and pull around the wire until its a rough circle. I doesn’t have to be perfect, but a circle is the shape we need.

Once you have the hanger into a circle shape, its time to add the diapers! Okay, its easy, I promise. Roll up the diapers from a short end, and wrap a rubber band around it once.

Now, place the diaper on the hanger, wrapping the rubber band around the hanger, then the other side of the diaper.

Great! Now, roll up another diaper, and wrap a rubber band around it once, then place it on the OPPOSITE side of the hanger from the first diaper and repeat the previous steps to get that diaper to stay on the hanger. Also, make sure to push those diapers toward the hook on the hanger to make them fit tight against one another. Keep doing this ever-so-often to get a uniformed look.

Got it? Okay, now all you have to do is roll and wrap the diapers alternating from either the top or the bottom of the hanger each time, so the diapers will sit on the wreath properly. I managed to use all 96 (it was tight!), but if you can’t, don’t worry! Brand new Momma won’t mind getting the leftovers in a bag.

TA-DA! You have your diaper wreath! Now all you have to do is attach the toys or ribbon or whatever you want to add to it. I used Floral wire to attach teethers and a stuffed toy this momma registered for. I added a ribbon on the “hook” for looks. She loved it. 🙂
