Make the Perfect Baby Shower Gift and Decor
My new DIY obsession is Diaper cakes!! I know there are a ton of diaper cakes to choose from but I fell in love with the sleeping baby diaper cake. It’s so adorable and from a distance it actually looks like a real baby, so I chose to take on a DIY Sleeping Baby Diaper Cake as my next Diaper Cake project:-) This DIY Sleeping Baby Diaper Cake was soooo easy, it literally only took me about 20 minutes to make. I swear I’m going to make a diaper cake for every baby shower I attend, I think they are such creative gifts full of fun and useful items that any baby will get plenty of use out of. If you love letting your creative side out and are looking for a handmade baby shower gift you MUST try this DIY Sleeping Baby Diaper Cake.
