The baby shower was a wonderful evening with other homeschooling moms from our group. Here are 7 of the 8 mamas honored last night!
Me with my basket of goodies!
And the gifts I made...
While walking around the hospital on Thursday in between blood draws, I saw these cute diaper wreaths at the hospital gift store. Many of the moms in the L&D area had them on their doors and they just seemed like such a fun thing to make for way less than the $24 they cost at the gift store (although those ones had many more little gifts...bibs and rattles and other cute things hanging from the wreath). I had to do all but one with yellow ribbon and "It's a Girl" on one side and "It's a Boy" on the other since most of the moms are waiting to find out the gender. I thought they came out pretty cute, and thought I'd share the idea and how to make them...
Started with those thick plastic Hefty Interlocking plates, cut out the center and started tying 10 diapers around the edge.
Tied string in an X across the wreath so the little stuffed duck could be tied on. I did make a little ribbon "hanger" but I think the X portion would work best as the hanger.
One finished product
All of them!
