Hopsy suggested doing a DIY Holiday gift link up so I thought why not! I have already followed her lead and made my own ornament wreath for our front door. It took a little over two hours and made me realize that a cordless hot glue gun is truly a gem!
But since Mini K is a December baby, I decided to do a post for those that have both a birthday and Christmas in the same month.
Today a friend had a baby girl. She has been through one of the most horrible pregnancies I know of and this week will be an emotional roller coaster. Since I am out of town for half of the week I wanted to make something that would make her smile when she brought her little princess home.
To make a diaper wreath you will need:
1 box of Pamper Swaddler Newborn size
9 yards of your choice of ribbon, I chose different shades of pink grosgrain
A wooden letter from your craft store
A metal wreath form
Hot glue gun
Paint your wooden letter the color of your choice and let dry. make sure to paint both sides of the letter.
Attach a piece of 18" ribbon with the hot glue gun to your letter and tie it to the metal wreath form.
Begin to wrap the diapers around the form and tie a knot with the ribbon.
Continue to work around the wreath until it is completely covered in diapers.
I love to give this as something fun to hang on the front door or baby's room.
