As some of you know – I spent last week in Tennessee for the birth of
my 6th grandchild! You can go to this post if you would like to see him-
While I was there, one of my daughters friends came to the hospital
to visit and brought her an adorable baby wreath that she hung on the
door to her hospital room. I looked it over and figured out how she made
it, because that is what we crafting types do! So here is my version -
I think it is both adorable and practical, the Mom can take the diapers off
and use them, and you can put anything from clothes to socks to toys on it
to accessorize it. I will show you a semi step by step of how I made it,
but I so apoligize up front for the tutorial pictures. They were taken in
the dark because I put it together after work last night -
Wire wreath – $3 at Michaels
Ribbon – $2 at Walmart
Rubber Bands – $1 at Walmart
Diapers – $8 at Walmart
Butterfly – $1 at Michaels
I bought the hat and mittens and the bibs at Ross for under $10.
So the total was about $25 – but you could do it for less if
you already had some of the supplies. The diapers are the biggest cost.
I started by putting the diapers on the wire wreath, alternating the styles/patterns.
I put rubber bands around the tops of the diapers, with the wire wreath in the middle.
I just kept alternating patterns, spacing them fairly tightly around the entire wreath.
Here is the finished picture at that stage.
Then I tied a piece of ribbon over the rubber band on each of the diapers.
Then I put a rubber band around the hat and mittens, and attached it to
one side of the wreath with a ribbon.
The bibs went on the other side, I just tied them to the wire.
The butterfly had a clip on the back, I placed it on above the bibs.
And that was it! Took me maybe 30 minutes total time.
Of course I was watching Parenthood while I made it, so I may
have been occasionally distracted – I love that show!
Here is my little photo shoot – hope you enjoyed seeing this project!
I forgot to add that I bought a clear plastic wreath hanger at Walmart too for around $2.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
