Are you throwing a Fall baby shower for a new mom? Here is a beautiful and inexpensive diaper cake you can make for her and use as decoration for the baby shower. Many of the items can be purchased at your local dollar store. Below you will find step-by-step picture tutorial on how to make this diaper cake for your baby shower.
Fall Baby Shower Diaper Cake Tutorial
This diaper cake costs about $15 total to make! You can even use the leftover decorations for around your house like the plates, ribbon, rafia, and silk leaves.
Fall Baby Shower Diaper Cake Supplies:
- 2” ribbon
- Bag of rafia
- Bag of silk leaves
- 4 pack plastic plates
- Plastic pumpkin with floral decorations
Fall Baby Shower Diaper Cake Directions:
To make the cake form follow the step by step diaper cake tutorial.
Wrap sheer ribbon around center of cake, secure overlapping ribbon with hot glue. Use 2-3 pieces of rafia the way you would ribbon, wrap around cake, tying a bow in front. If your bow will not stay straight (some rafia is stiff and doesn’t lay as nicely as ribbon) secure with a dot or two of hot glue.
Fall Baby Shower Diaper Cake – Creating the Plate
Tuck silk leaves randomly throughout between rafia and wide ribbon. To create the base I used a plastic plate from a 4 pack. Run a thin line of hot glue a few inches at a time about 1/8” from the edge of plate, press the stem end of leaves into glue, continue all the way around. Place beneath cake form.
For the topper I simply bought the pre-decorated pumpkin from my local dollar store and hot glued it to the cap of bottle of baby lotion stuck in the top layer.
