How to Make a Diaper Cake: {Free Tutorials & Directions}

Posted By Tipnut On April 12, 2011 @ 12:25 pm In Baby Goodies,Crafty Ideas | 4 Comments

Diaper cakes (or nappy cakes) are given at baby showers to display as a centerpiece and are made with a few tiers of rolled diapers. They are decorated with pretty ribbons, topped with toys and can be filled with lots of goodies such as a bottle of baby powder, baby bottles, washcloths, socks and much more. They make quite an impressive display but they’re also a lovely, practical gift for the lucky new mom…and the good news is they’re super easy to make too!

Here’s an updated list of tutorials that I’ve handpicked from around the ‘net, the first group is made mainly with stacked diapers and then you’ll find my favorite at the bottom (it’s loaded with goodies like washcloths, supplies and toys), this one offers both written instructions and a video tutorial. Have fun!
