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 used for decoration during the shower and also decoration in the nursery before the baby was born.  But now my 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 cute.

Obtaining Embellishments

But due to circumstances beyond our control, money was tight for RancherMan & me at gift-giving time.  So I wanted to obtain the basic frameworks 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 for the wreath was picked up for only about $1.  The little glittery heart pics were about $0.10 for the whole group.  Perfect!

And those cute little Ugg-styled boots  with the adorable heart clip on the side?  Brand new & only about a buck.  Oh and my uncle secured the brightly-colored foam letters to spell out the baby’s name for free!

I still had the super-stretchy tiny hair elastics for attaching diapers to the frame from the previous diaper wreath.  So I purchased a few baby items such as a pack of diapers, a pacifier, baby washcloths, pink socks, travel-sized baby toiletries, etc.  Now I was ready to assemble my wreath.

Assembling The Diaper Wreath

I rolled each diaper and secured with tiny white elastic super-stretchy hair bands around each diaper to make a diaper roll like this:

When I got about 40 diapers rolled, I used pink ribbon to lace the diapers to my wire wreath frame like this:

Attaching All The Gifts

Then I attached my gifts using elastic bands & more ribbon to tie them to the diapers.  The boots were hung from the top using pink tulle and a bright-pink hair clip. More tulle was tucked into the boots to add more pink pop!

Finally I hot-glued the foam letters on bottom, inserted the glittery heart-shaped decorations here & there, fluffed in a little extra pink tulle and my gift was complete!

Mama always said half the gift was in the presentation. This gift presents itself beautifully! It didn’t cost much money but it was hand-made with much love.  And the new parents-to-be really loved it!  I told them that I fully expected them to pull these items from the wreath as they were needed.  But in the meantime they could use it to decorate the baby’s nursery.  It was the perfect gift for them!

Previous Diaper Wreath Made

Oh, and here’s a peak at the other baby girl diaper wreath I made months ago for my neighbor. This one had a plush teddy bear attached at the bottom. I think it turned out cute too.

    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. ~TMH~
