Rubber Ducky Diaper Cake

My daughter-in-law's baby shower was held in our home last Saturday.  She is expecting our first grandchild!  My sister-in-law, Bev, was hostess, but I had to do some decorating!  lol!  Here is my son, Adam, and his lovely wife, Beth!



One of things I've been wanting to make is a diaper cake!  It was SO much fun and easier than I expected!  Since we don't know the sex of the baby yet, we went with a Rubber Ducky theme with yellow, blue and gray!


and here is the back:



I used a silver charger plate for the bottom.  I wrapped each diaper with a rubber band, then made the layers by combining them in a circle.  I attached rattles, and teething rings, little onesies, a ducky hat, a ducky wash mitt, and a rubber ducky with heat sensor (for testing bath water) at the top!


Around each layer, I added 1 3/4 strips of the Summer Starfruit Chevron Paper in Parker's Patterns Designer Paper, layered on 2" strips of Basic Gray.  I had JUST enough of the DSP left over from the Shower Invitations that I made.  (See them HERE!)  I rolled and tied on all the little toys and items with Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon.


I thought it turned out DARLING!!!  She loved it and so did everyone else in attendance.  My husband was especially enthralled with it…saying that I could easily sell them!  He was going to show pictures off around the office!  lol!  I'll be showing off some of the other baby shower decorations later in the week, so check back!

This would be so easily adapted to about any theme also; terrific idea to do the duck theme!!  I have seen these done before, a couple of times, but they were not "themed"; i really like that idea!!

Congratulations on the grandbaby!!  8)
