How to make diaper wreaths for baby showers
With a few basic crafting skills and plenty of diapers, you can create beautiful diaper wreaths for baby showers. There are no specific rules for making a diaper wreath or what you should put in them. Diaper wreaths are generally made from a cardboard base and have diapers placed around them. While some designs include open diapers, others use rolled-up diapers with colored ribbons.

With a pair of craft scissors, punch holes in the cardboard base to be approximately 2 inches apart. Between each hole, you will find one rolled-up diaper. These diapers will be attached to the ground with ribbons. You will need 22 pieces of ribbon every 6 inches in length. 11 samples are from the broad stripes, 11 from the narrow strips. These should be threaded through the holes to create a loop on one side. The back ends of the ribbons should remain untied. The vast and narrow stripes can be placed in different ways or uniformly.

To keep each diaper in place, roll them into a bundle. The diaper can be rolled up and tied with ribbons. However, a rubber band prevents it from unraveling.

To hang the wreath, glue a ribbon
To hang the wreath, use one of the long ribbon strips to cut a length. This is the anchor that will support the weight. Wrap it around the base ring at both ends and tie a knot. Use hot-glue to attach the remainder of the ribbon to your base. The loop should only be visible at the front.
Add a stuffed animal
The wreath is complete with a stuffed animal. It would help if you chose something light and within the same size range as the wreath’s inside diameter. You can select a monkey, a gorilla, or a doll or teddy bear for a diaper wreath. Wrap the garland around the neck of your stuffed animal, and you don’t need to fasten it.
