Diaper Cakes

The last two years of my life have been filled with precious baby showers for dear friends. And a diaper cake is one of those things that seems to be a staple at each one. Each one being fun, creative, and unique. I don't think I've ever seen two just exactly alike.

Baby Diapers - package of 56 (any size)
Clear Hair rubber bands
Double sided sticky tape or hot glue gun (I prefer hot glue gun)
Bigger rubber bands
2 8 oz baby bottles or 2 baby lotion bottles etc.
Candy To Go In Bottles (optional)

1.) Start rolling up diapers and put a clear rubber band around each of them.

2.) First Base is three rows of diapers wrapped around a bottle/lotion that will make the bottom layer - a big rubber band goes around those. (put candy in the bottle - optional)

3.) Second base has 2 rows of diapers wrapped around a baby lotion or bottle. The second bottle doesn't have treats because it will hold the flowers or you could put candy again or use baby lotion and put a bow on top. Have fun and be creative.

4.) The top layer has just one row around the top of the bottle or baby lotion.
5.) Put ribbon of choice around each tier. Secure the ribbon with tape or glue gun. (glue gun preferred)
