I made this diaper cake for my sister, who is having a girl in 3 weeks, and it was so much fun to make! First, I got a storage bin from walmart...$8. I glued a piece of zebra print felt in the bottom and left it alone to dry. Then I decorated the box...I've included to pictures of one of the sides. I then left it to dry overnight. When I started again, I put a bottle in the middle of the box...the bottle just so happened to be pink and sebra print to :) Then I started my rings. I started rolling diapers with rubber bands and made my first ring and secured it with a big rubber band. Then I did the second, and finally the third ring. I then placed fours rolled up diapers in the corners of the box. Then, I tied a peice of 1/2 zebra print ribbon around the entire tier and brought the two ends outside the hole and made a knot. Then, I started the second tier.
The second tier went much the same way the first did, except I only did two rings and the second ring I tied each diaper
with a 1/4 in piece of hot pink ribbon. Then I took a piece of 1/2 zebra print ribbon and tied it around the whole thing, making a knot in the front.
The third tier, I took a travel size bottle of baby powder and put 4 rolled up diapers(tied with 1/4 pieces of hot pink ribbon) around it and secured it with a big rubber band. Then I took a piece of 1/4 in zebra print ribbon and tied it across the rubber band, so it wasn't showing. I did this all on the table and then carefully placed it on top of the 2nd tier. Then came the fun part...decorating!
First, I added some small baby bath products and zebra print socks. I tied a piece of hot pink ribbon around the socks. Then I added MANY bows and hair accesories. I also got some little pink, black, white, and zebra pring poms from Hobby Lobby and scattered them throughout the tiers. Then I placed a stuffed zebra on the top. This is where I ran into a problem, since the zebra did not wanna stay up there. First I tried tying a long piece of hot pink ribbon around the neck and making a bow, and tying the ends to the sides of the box. This didnt work, but it looked so cute that I kept it on anyways. Then I decided to tape the legs to the tops of the top tier of diapers with transparent tape...this worked, as long as I didn't move it around too much. Then I was completely finished.
The diaper cake was a big hit! Everybody liked it, especially my sister. I hosted the shower, and as soon as all the pictures are developed, I will add them :)
