If you have a baby shower to attend, consider making a festive diaper cake for the mom to be! Diaper Cakes are a creative way to gift things the baby will need and to present them in a fun way. And when you score a great deal on diapers (think coupons and sales!), then you should be able to make a very affordable diaper cake.
I recently made my first diaper cake for my sister in law’s golf-themed baby shower (my brother is a golf course superintendent and they both love golfing together!). My kids and I had fun putting this together for their soon to be cousin and it was actually pretty easy to do! I saved money by buying the toy clubs and diaper bag clip at Dollar Tree, and the socks and burp cloth from TJ Maxx.
To make this diaper golf bag, start by rolling 48 size 1 diapers and securing them each with a rubber band. Secure 3 of those rolled diapers together with another rubber band. Then line up 9 rolled diapers around the three you just did and secure with one or two rubber bands. Repeat three more times and you’ll end up with four tiers of diapers for the bag.
Carefully insert toy golf clubs between the middle diapers and they will support the four tiers of diapers. Embellish bag with coordinating ribbon, baby socks, and use a diaper bag clip to clip on a burp cloth. I used the cardboard bottom portion of a pant hanger from the dry cleaners cut in half for the stand.
Note: My bag was inspired by this one from MonkeySmiles. Thanks for the inspiration!
