Thrifty Family Finds' Diaper Cake Tutorial + Honest Company Gift Card Giveaway

A friend of mine was having a baby last fall and I wanted to make her a diaper cake for her shower.  I looked at tons of really detailed diaper cake tutorials online, and realized it didn’t have to be that complicated.  So here’s my super easy Diaper Cake tutorial – I didn’t even take photos of each step because it’s that easy 🙂

Here’s what you’ll need:

– 1-2 packs of diapers – the exact number really depends on the size of the diapers and the size you want the diaper cake.  I used a little less than 1 pack of Honest Company Size 2 Diapers for this cake (which has 40 diapers in it).  I used the dinosaur print diapers because dinosaurs have special meaning for her and her family.

– Large rubber bands

– Ribbon

– Some sort of “cake topper.”  I used a dinosaur cookie cutter.

For each layer, lay the diapers one on top of the other in a line of the floor or table, slightly staggered.  It doesn’t have to be a precise number or anything, as you’ll add more in later.

Roll the line of diapers as tightly as you can without letting them loosen, and secure a rubber band around the outside to hold them together.

Add diapers into “holes” to even out the layer until it’s to your desired fullness.

Tie a ribbon around the outside for decoration.

Repeat these steps on a smaller scale for the top tier.

Stack the tiers.  You can use a toilet paper or paper towel tube for the center if you like, but I simply tied a ribbon to the cookie cutter and laced it down through the center and tied it off at the bottom.

That’s it.  So simple!
