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! : )

  • 1 piece of Foamboard, (20×30 inches in size)
  • 50 Diapers (size 2 used in example)

Diaper Cake Basket

Hello Eveyone!

My featured Diaper cake today is the Basket Diaper Cake! It’s a simple fun idea much like a traditional diaper cake. With just a few added accessories you can give your diaper cake a fun look and surprise the mother to be at the Baby Shower. The idea is to dress up the usual Single Tier, Round Diaper Cake so it looks more like a special gift basket. The little bit of extra time required to make the Basket Diaper Cake will really show the guest of honor how much you care.

Below is a quick list of items I used to make the basket Diaper Cake. As always though you can pick and choose whatever items you like and make the cake your own idea too.

Items List:

  • 56 Diapers, Size 2 Used in Example
  • 3 Receiving Blankets
  • 1 Roll of Ribbon, 1 Inch Wide (Used to make bow and wrap around cake)
  • 1 Roll of Ribbon, 1/4 Inch Wide (Used to tie items to basket)
  • 5 Pairs of Baby Socks
  • 2 Small Stuff Animals
  • 2 Baby Bottles
  • 1 Bag of Buttons
  • 1 Bag of Small Decoration Flowers
  • 1 Bag of Rubber Bands
  • 1 Bottle of baby Shampoo
  • 1 Bottle of Baby Lotion or Oil
  • 1 Bottle of baby Powder
  • 1 Wire Type Coat Hanger
