Cute But Inexpensive Diaper Wreath for a Baby Girl

by Texas Homesteader ~

I’ve written before about making a diaper wreath for our neighbor’s baby shower. The gift was well received and was initially used right there, right then for some eye-catching decoration during the baby shower.

Not only that, but it also served as decoration in the nursery before the baby was born. And then after the baby was born, all of these items included in my diaper wreath gift could be actually used for the baby. Gotta love it!

But now my sweet little niece & her hubby were expecting their first baby – a baby girl. I really wanted to make a diaper wreath for them as well.

They loved it, and I think it turned out really cute.

Obtaining Embellishments

But due to circumstances beyond our control, money was extra tight for RancherMan & me at gift-giving time. I wanted to obtain the basic eye-catching components of my diaper wreath as inexpensively as possible. Luckily my aunt is the queen of garage-sale shopping.

So we went in search of some of the basic components and were able to buy them very inexpensively. A brand-new wire wreath frame & lots of pink tulle and embellishments for the wreath were picked up for only about $1.

The little glittery heart pics were only ten cents for the whole group. They were so cute and will offer lots of visual appeal. And all for for only $0.10? Now THAT’S in my budget, y’all. Perfect!

And those cute little Ugg-styled boots with the adorable heart clip on the side? Brand new, never worn & only about a buck.

Oh and my uncle secured the brightly-colored foam letters to spell out the baby’s name for free! Now inexpensive is one thing, but FREE?? YES!

I still had a supply of the super-stretchy tiny hair elastics for attaching the tiny diapers to the frame from the previous diaper wreath I’d made for our neighbors. But even if you had to purchase them, I got about 100 for only $1 at the dollar store.

Now that I had all the basic framework components I needed to purchase the actual baby items – those needed to be brand new of course. 

So I went shopping for a few cute baby items. I ended up buying a pack of tiny baby diapers, a pink pacifier, some baby washcloths, a few tiny pink baby socks, some travel-sized baby toiletries, etc.

All of those baby things will be used to embellish my diaper wreath as well. Now I was ready to assemble my diaper wreath gift. It’s easy and doesn’t take much time at all.

Assembling The Diaper Wreath

Foirst I rolled each diaper and secured it with one of those tiny white elastic super-stretchy hair bands stretched around each diaper to make a diaper roll like this:

Now it’s time to attached those little diaper rolls onto the wreath frame. And I wanted it to look decorative too.

So when I got about 40 diapers rolled, I used pink ribbon to lace the diapers to my wire wreath frame.

The ribbon was wrapped around each diaper and laced onto the wire wreath like this:

Attaching All The Gifts

Then I attached my baby-item gifts using those same elastic bands & more ribbon to tie them to the diapers. I just spaced them around the edges of the diaper wreath until I liked how they looked

The tiny Ugg-styled boots were hung from the top using pink tulle. I added a bright-pink hair clip for a little more eye-catching appeal.

More tulle was tucked into the top of the tiny boots to add a little more pink pop!

Finally I hot-glued the foam letters on the bottom to spell out the baby’s name. And I inserted the glittery heart-shaped decorations here & there to fill in any empty spots.

Finally I fluffed in a little extra pink tulle. It was inexpensive and I had plenty of it. So I used it liberally as I wanted. Now my personalized baby diaper wreath gift was complete!

Ya know, mama always said half the gift was in the presentation. This gift presents itself beautifully!

It didn’t cost much money and didn’t take much time to assemble. But it was hand-made with much love.

And the new parents-to-be really loved it! I told them when we gave it to them that we fully expected them to pull these items from the wreath as they were needed. It wasn’t just for decoration unless they wanted it for that purpose only.

I didn’t want them to feel obliged to leave it intact for fear of offending us. They were free to use it however they pleased.

Either way, in the meantime they could use this cute personalized diaper wreath to decorate the baby’s nursery. It was the perfect gift for them!

A Previous Diaper Wreath Made

Oh, and remember I mentioned that I’d made a diaper wreath before? Here’s a peak at the other baby girl diaper wreath I made months ago for my neighbor. It also included baby washcloths, baby toiletries, tiny socks and cute hair decorations.

Instead of boots this one had a plush teddy bear attached at the bottom. I think it turned out really cute too.

You can personalize a diaper wreath however you want. I’d think little cowboy boots added to the wreath would be super cute, maybe along with some colorful bandanas. Let your imagination run wild and just have fun with it.

This gift doesn’t cost much but it’ll be much appreciated by the parents to be. And it serves not one but two purposes – gifts for the new baby and nursery decoration until the baby comes home!

    We mowed our yard the 5th of May and normally mow every week but haven’t been able to mow since the5th. We still have some standing water in the low spots of our yard. Our yard is begging to look like a jungle. Hubby tried to mow the other day but it was just too wet and mowing wet grass is hard a mower so he quit. By the way; the weeds are coming up nicely as well. :{
    Darling wreath Tammie. They make for such a useful gift.
    I remember making a few of these for baby showers along with a few diaper cakes as well.

    Take care, stay safe and remember; ‘Today is a good day to have a good day; so enjoy it & embrace it.’

    I love your creativity and resourcefulness! Frugality doesn’t mean shoddy or ugly just because it didn’t cost a fortune.

      This is the 2nd one I’ve made Cynthia. Both of mine have been for baby girls but it’s easily adaptable for a little boy too! And they can use it for decoration at their baby shower, a decoration in the nursery before the baby’s born and then use the gifts as they need them when the little one arrives. ~TxH~
