Diaper Cake Wagon

Hello everyone!

Here is another fun Diaper Cake you can make! It’s a Diaper Cake Wagon!  I got the idea when I was near the toy section in a store and saw a kids Radio Flyer Wagon. I thought it might be a cool idea to try and make one for a Baby Shower gift. It is pretty easy to make using some low cost foam board I found at Dollar Tree, just $1 a sheet. The rest of the items are the usual receiving blankets, diapers and various baby stuff. What I really liked about this fun project is that it is great for filling up and holding all the gifts you want to give. I hope you all like it and maybe try and make it at the next baby shower you go to!

Thanks so much for your support! : )
