Diaper Cakes

We are having a Baby Shower my sister in a few weeks.   I am trying to keep the decorations simple, elegant and not too baby-ish.

This project was so much fun.  I constructed these Diaper Cakes in the color scheme of her nursery to use as the centerpiece...

I made my Cakes out of a 50 pack of Generic Diapers 
(the expensive kind have colors and patterns on them, the cheap ones are solid white),

 a pack of rubber bands,

satin ribbon,

and tissue paper.  

Here is a really good tutorial on the Diaper Cake and here is one for the Tissue Flowers for anyone that's interested.  Super simple, a little time consuming but worth it.

My 7 year son had this to say: 
"Mom,  I really like your project but, I wish we were having real cake". 


  1. I love how simple and elegant you made these!

    And I collect milkglass cake plates, so I love those too!

  2. Oh that is so cute. I'm involved with a shower next month. I'll have to remember this idea. :)

    Come by for a Shabby Apple dress give away.

  3. Wow! yours turned out beautiful! My friends made one for a shower we hosted and it was really cute too! Check it out:)

  4. Just perfect and I like the simplicity. Boy if pampers only knew they get no free advertising for patterned diapers.

  5. Those always make such a nice Shower gift. Yours look beautiful too!
