This was so much fun to do as I just love doing crafts and have never attempted making one before, so I decided to make a post on how to make a diaper cake:
supplies: cardboard circle, papertowel roll, bag of elastics, ribbon, diapers in 3 sizes, decorations, glue gun
So you will need a cardboard circle cut out to the size of the bottom of the cake: what ever size you want it to be
then you will need a roll of papertowel…don’t use one of the double roll ones as you wont have room left over for diapers.
you will need a bag of elastics, some nice ribbon…large enough to cover the elastics
some lovely toys or stuffed animals to add to the cake after its finished
oh…I needed a glue gun to keep all my ribbon together
and #1 you will need 3 sizes of diapers, I did size 2 on the bottom, size 1 in the middle and newborn on the top
Step 1- before you go ahead and get started roll all your diapers with small elastics (try to keep all elastics in the same place on all the diapers)take your cardboard circle, put your papertowel roll onto the middle like the above photo, make one circle of size 2 diapers around your paper towel and then put your big elastic around your first row. Now go ahead and fill in your diapers until you can’t see your cardboard circle anymore
Step 2- start your second row of diapers using size 1 and do the same as step 1 by starting one circle of diapers and adding your elastic then filling it in until you have 1 row less then the bottomStep 3- start your last tier using your newborn diapers doing the same as step 2
Step 4- now this is the fun part start to add the ribbon of your choice and start to decorate….
I had so much fun making this for my best friend!! and I hope who ever gets your cake loves it too.
