How to Make a Diaper Wreath
A diaper wreath not only allows for a table decoration in a sea of diaper boxes, but it also lets you add on small items that the mom and dad will appreciate. I like opting for making a diaper wreath myself instead of purchasing one as it adds a personalized touch to the gift while being budget-friendly. Not to mention, it's super easy to make, so I'm sharing my tutorial with you today.
Once you've made the diaper wreath, it's common to decorate it with a few things. You can do everyday necessities or even personal touches. I like to do a theme with a few items from the registry and a few items they'll appreciate when they use it. The products used for this wreath were self-care related.
Don't be afraid to give them something you know they'll need, even if it's not on the registry. I gifted this to my cousin, and although she wouldn't use it right away, due to it being for 6+ months, I added the vapor bath relief for stuffy noses and coughs. Essential oils are a natural relief option for children. A few months later, I got a message that she used it on her older son, and it worked well.
What You'll Need
1. 20 Inch Floral Wire Wreath, $16
2. 1 Box of Pampers Size 1, 32 Count, $25
3. Rubber Bands (Same Count as Diapers Used, 32), $6
4. Dinosaur Stuffed Animal, $19
5. Essential Oil Vapor Bath Relief, $8
6. On-The-Go Travel Set, $13
7. Slumber and Sleep Essential Oil Roll-On, $13

9. Thin Ribbon, $10
10. Thick Ribbon (Tip: Use wire ribbon for a more structured look), $12
Step 1: Roll up each diaper and secure them with a rubber band.
Tip: I rolled with the print side up so the wreath would be all white. If your diapers have a fun print on them to showcase, roll them print side out. I like to gift diapers bigger than the newborn size because diapers go by weight, and some babies are born right at the cusp or bigger than newborn size. I secured my ribbons in a diagonal, but you can also do a straight line just be sure to be consistent. You want to roll up enough diapers to cover the entire wreath.
Step 2: Cut your thin ribbon to tie the diaper onto the wreath.
Tip: I made each ribbon 8 inches long if you tend to need a little more tying room, go a little longer at 9 inches.
Step 3: Once you have cut enough ribbon for each diaper, begin tying the diapers onto the wreath.
Step 4: After all of your diapers are fastened to the wire wreath, cut your thick ribbon, and tie a bow I made mine centered.
Step 5: Organize all of your additional items on the wreath and make adjustments as needed. Then attach them to the wire wreath. I used the thin ribbon for this.
