Default Baby Shower Diaper Centerpiece

Does anyone have the instructions on how to put this centerpiece together...it looks like a big cake with ribbon around it holding the diapers and you add baby items to the ouside of it. I am putting on a baby shower and really want to do this centerpiece! TIA!

They have instructions and pre-made centerpieces on EBay. Some of them are really awesome - I saw an airplane and a giraffe made out of diapers!

Default diaper cake

I've done a few of these and I found the easiest way is to use rubber bands to hold the diapers together. You want at least 3 jumbo packages, newborn, 1 and 2. The newborn diapers will be the top 2 layers and for you to fill in any gaps, the size 1 will be your next one or two layers (depending on how big you want it) and the size 3 will be you bottom layer or two (again depending on how wide you make it). Take each diaper and open it up and then roll from one side and ending so that the velcro pattern is what ends up on the outside of the roll (that will help w/ your design), then rubber band it together. Once you rolled them all together. I then take another rubber band and connect it to another rubber band so you have two rubber banded together. Continue until you have the width you want, then fill in the middle w/ the other diapers. Once it is all assembled. Take wide satin ribbon and tie it around the middle of each later to hide the rubber bands. You can then tie accessories around each bundle all around the cake. This is definitely a wow item and I loved doing it! You can get lots of little baby items at the dollar store to tie all over the cake. If I'm presenting this as a give, I would wrap the whole cake in coordinating tulle (it's make such a nice presentation). If using as a centerpiece, put on top of a cute patterned receiving blanket and save some wrapped diaper rolls (cover the rubber band w/ ribbon) and scatter around the diaper cake. Have fun!

Default rolled babysocks flowers

I made these years ago with cloth diapers and used rolled babysocks as flowers to decorate it. Sorry I didn't take any photos.

I got one at my baby shower it was made with baby blankets and cloth diapers with all kinds of things tied on with ribbons the top layer had a baby bottle with a spoon & fork set inside it, we never used bottles but it was cute and gave something to wrap the cloth diapers around.

I have made these years ago. I didn't really have instructions - I just had seen them and put my own together. If I remember correctly, I started rollign them from the center out and kept tucking the end of the next one into the previous one. I used lace on the outside layer to make it look like fancy icing and then stuck the baby items in between the diapers.

You actually need 4 hands you just take the disposable diapers and roll them like you would a newspaper and place them in a circle. They are held together by the ribbon. When I made one a also tied wash cloths, pacifers, bath toys, pacififer holders and just an assortment of things that the Mother could use. The trick is rolling the diapers tight enough. Also if you get diapers that have a border printed on it it makes the cake look like it's decorated in icing. I also put a small flower arrangement on top that the Mom could use in the baby's room. Hope this helps. I did have a picture I'll try to find and send to you.
