Yesterday my mom and I hosted a diaper shower for a dear friend who is expecting her first baby girl.
I knew I wanted to have a wreath on the front door and I thought surely you can make a wreath from diapers.
Last week I posted this picture on Instagram and Greis wanted a how-to!
So to make this, I used one 12″ foam floral wreath, 21 size 2 diapers, 22 rubberbands, two 8″ boas (one pink, one black), and 3 hairbows. (Although next time I’ll get more boas and less hairbows.)
Because I’d already assembled it when I decided to do a tutorial, I did a few pictures using the handle of a basket instead of the wreath form.
First you’ll open up a diaper and put it on the wreath form just like you would a baby but without opening up the flaps.
Then put a rubber band around the diaper and pull it down close to the wreath form.
Squeeze the butt of the diaper so that it’s a little compressed.
That’ll make sure you have room for all of the diapers and give the wreath a little dimension.
Once all of the diapers are attached, I used the black boa and weaved it over – under – over the diapers all the way around to cover up half of the rubberbands. Then I did the opposite with the pink boa. I tied the loose ends together in the back.
Then I used the remaining rubber band to attach the hairbows. I wrapped around and tied it in the back and then was able to attach the hairbows to the part in the front. BUT if I make another one, I’ll probably just get more feather boas and make a bow with them.
This really is easy and it looks adorable!
