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!
Paper Towel Tube Center : Made with lots of rolled Pampers arranged around a paper towel tube, secured in place with ribbon then filled with lots of baby goodies.
This one’s loaded! It’s filled with nappies, wrapped with a baby blanket and shawl and all kinds of goodies tucked in such as a bib, washcloths, socks, pacifier, bottle, teether, and lots more.
