DIY Diaper Cake

I helped Mimi put together a diaper cake for a baby shower in honor of a gal in her bible study group. I had never made one before, but knew it couldn't be that difficult. 

I did a bit of Googling and found the easiest tutorial from Momaroo.

We used a basic cake stand as our base. 

The instructions said to start out with one large piece of twine and add folded diapers until you've made the size you want {I'm not sure how this was done alone, Mimi and I found it difficult with two of us trying to hold the diapers}. We found it easier to create smaller sections of diapers with twine, then wrap each section together with the larger piece of twine. It comes out exactly the same as the tutorial, and prevented the diapers from moving around while trying to tie them together. 

I decorated each layer with pretty girly ribbon using double sided tape and bit of hot glue. Mimi made the bows. And we topped it with a cute pair of baby booties.
