My friend and I were on a mission to make a diaper cake for as little money as possible. We had never made one before but she bought a HUGE box of size 1 Huggies for $20.00 and we wanted to somehow use them as a gift. It was really easy to make and probably only took a couple of hours total. The ways to make these and dress them up are endless, but I'll give you a run down of how we made ours.
Supplies you'll need.
A box of at least 150 diapers.
Pizza pan (Walmart $3)
Bag of multi sized rubber bands (Walmart less then a $1)
Wide ribbon-We used 2 spools (Walmart $2 each)
1 dowel (Joannes $1)
Hand puppet (Joannes $1)
Foam stickers (Joannes $1)
Hot glue gun
Roll up each diaper you use, starting from the open top end.
*Add a diaper to any gaps*
Do the same thing with your next tier but only add 2 layers of diapers to your center.
Wrap wide ribbon around each tier to cover the rubber bands. Secure the ribbon by hot gluing it to it's self. Not the diapers!
For our topper, we put 3 diapers inside the hand puppet, then put the puppet on top of the dowel.
*Depending on what you do for your topper, you may need to cut your dowel shorter so it wont be seen.*
Use foam stickers to decorate the tiers.
Anyways, have fun with it! And I would love to see pictures of the ideas you come up with!
