Sweet and Simple Baby Shower Centerpieces

Sweet and Simple Baby Shower Centerpieces by Just a Girl and Her Blog

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of celebrating a friend who is expecting a sweet baby girl! I did a lot of the decorations for the shower, and you can bet I went absolutely crazy with the pink since I never get to do that around here! {I love those sweet little Cs, but they are not pink people! ;) } I LOVE creating party decor, but one of the things that saddens me about it is that most of it ends up being thrown away after the shower. As a sweet and simple solution to that problem, I came up with these diaper centerpieces that can be well used by the mama-to-be long after her shower is over.

Here’s what I used to create them:

  • Faux flowers
  • Diapers (8 per centerpiece; I like Pampers because they’re white.)
  • Rubber bands
  • Scissors
  • Yellow and pink ribbon (One roll of each was plenty for 4 centerpieces.)
  • Hot glue gun

Step 1- Roll the Diapers

I started by rolling 7 of the 8 diapers and securing them with rubber bands.

For the last diaper, I trimmed down the stem of one of my flowers so that it was slightly shorter than the width of the diaper and wrapped the diaper around it.

Step 2- Put It All Together

Next I just put the diaper with the flower in the center, arranged the other rolled diapers around it, and secured everything together with another rubber band.

Step 3- Add Ribbon!

Everything is better with ribbon, right? I wrapped my first piece of ribbon around the centerpiece, securing it in the back with a dot of hot glue.

I then put my second piece of ribbon slightly above the first, tying it in a bow, and I was done!

At the party, we just popped each one onto a little hexagon plate from the Target Dollar Spot, sprinkled some confetti around it, and we were good to go!

    Great idea! A new mom can NEVER have too many diapers. My MIL made a diaper “cake” for my shower and it was much appreciated. I happened to save all the ribbon and decorations from it, so even though she passed away before my SIL (her daughter) gave birth, I was able to use those decorations to recreate the cake for my SIL’s shower. Then it became something sentimental as well as useful.

      Thanks so much, Anne! IKEA makes pretty good fake flowers, I guess! I didn’t even know they sold them until I found these beauties there! Hope you’re having a wonderful week!

    Loving these!! I’ve actually made a big diaper cake as a gift for a family member of mine and it was a lot of work but so much fun to do! These are beautiful!

    Hi Thanks for the great idea. I’m going to make them for my daughter’s baby shower. I bought everything today except the diapers. I was wondering what size diapers you used because I imagine it would make a difference.
    Thanks,
    Michele

      Here is your comment! I’m sorry it wasn’t showing right away! I know I answered via email, but in case anyone else was wondering, they were size 2! :) Hope you’re having a great week, Michele!
