When my BFF brought her second baby girl into the world I needed to learn how to make a diaper bouquet.
After searching the web for ideas and inspiration I came up with this method using a list of materials that mama can use later.

Diaper Bouquet Materials
- diapers (I know that she already uses Luvs brand diapers with baby #1 so I got some of those in size 1)
- wooden skewers (I found these in the cooking utensils at Target, any wooden dowels would do)
- rubber bands
- small tutu
- flower headband
- scarf or remnant (I used a piece of pink fleece found in the remnants section at the fabric store. A scarf would work well too.)
How to Make a Diaper Bouquet
The diaper bouquet is really simple to make once you get down how to make the flowers.
Begin by making the individual diaper roses.
Tightly roll a diaper around a skewer and secure with a rubber band. Repeat with all diaper roses. I made a bouquet of a dozen diaper roses.
Arrange the diaper roses in a bouquet while weaving the tutu in between the flowers and around the whole bouquet.
Use a rubber band to hold all of the skewers together at the base of the flowers. Add another rubber band further down if needed.
Wrap the fabric remnant or scarf around the skewers and tie on so it holds tight.
Wrap the flower headband around the bouquet and you’re done.
This is such a sweet and simple DIY gift for new moms. It’d also make the perfect centerpiece for a baby shower!
What about a receiving blanket instead of a scarf?
Hi Trenna – Yes! A receiving blanket would work great and is a much needed tool for a new baby.

Soo.,..cute! I will try to make this for my daughter in law when she has her baby girl, my granddaughter. I will make one out of diapers for her and one out of Indira for my son. Thanks for posting
