Not only are they adorable but they can be taken home and utilized by the mom-to-be. These can be placed on guest tables, placed on food tables or put around the room for decorations at the baby shower.

DIY Baby Shower Centerpieces – Mini Diaper Cake Directions:
Begin by laying diapers printed image side up on table. Roll diapers, starting at the waist into a tight roll and secure with a rubber band wrapped around the center.
Place rolled diapers in a tight circle around each other or insert a vase, or baby bottle in the center and secure with a large rubber band around the middle of diapers.
You can either stop here or make a smaller bundle and place that on top by sticking skewer in the center of the bottom layer and sliding the small bundle over top of skewer.
Use ribbon or fabric to cover rubber bands as well as to add color and texture to your mini cake. Secure in back with hot glue or pins.
Some cute DIY Baby Shower Centerpieces – Different Theme Ideas:
Outdoor Lover- a fishing cake. Wrap in a plaid or other woodsy print, place cat tails in center of bundles and hot glue on a lure or two. Use enamel cookware, vintage fishing poles, and lanterns throughout.
Country Charm- Wrap center of cakes in burlap and glue on wildflowers, daisies, or sunflowers. Use burlap as a table runner to further the theme. Mason jars, boots, and scattered petals on the tables can really set the mood too.
Pretty Princess- Wrap a tutu around each mini diaper cake, add a tiara to top layer. Scatter beads, tiaras, and play rings around the table to create a table scape worthy of her coming royal highness.
Floral Vase– Wrap diapers around a vase( or recycled Starbucks glass as you see here), holding them with a rubber band around the center. Top with a pretty ribbon and fill vase with real or silk flowers.
Little Man– I adore the mustaches that are everywhere these days from home décor to clothing. They are definitely popular for showers. Since crafts stores sell multi-packs of mustaches for only $1 or so not only is this an adorable them but inexpensive as well. Simply wrap your layers in a wide ribbon then top with a smaller coordinating or contrasting ribbon in party colors. Attach a mustache with hot glue and use scrapbook stickers to spell out “Little Man”, or you could spell out the little arrivals name as well.
