I know you have all seen diaper wreaths (well if you haven’t you will have to google them sometime) they are cute, and I like ‘em. But I like these better =) ha ha. I am definitely biased though because these are my very own unique creations! I posted about one of my baby wreaths back in May and I have finally been able to make another one so I could do an actual tutorial for all of you:
Step 1: Collect some cute stuff!
- First and foremost you are going to need a wreath base. I got lucky and found this 13″ wreath base at a local dollar store. If you can’t find one at a dollar store you will have to fork out a few more bucks and pick one up at a craft store like Roberts or JoAnn’s.
- Next you will need to get some baby onesies & socks. I just bought a package of 5 onesies with a coordinating package of socks. Worked great!
- You will also need: silk flowers, greens, hot glue, and ribbon.
Step 2: Lay out your onesies and socks so you can visualize how they will fit and look on your wreath.
then make a mark on your wreath base so you can see the area on your wreath where your onesies and socks will go. This is the area that you DO NOT want to fill with flowers/greens.
I drew a line between my markings so I wouldn’t get confused…
Step 3: Start by adding your greens. You will want to glue them onto your wreath in a circular pattern. Don’t have one leaf pointing to the left and another pointing to the right, PICK ONE direction and stick with it! You can see that mine are all glued on in a clockwise direction…
Step 4: Now you get to add your pretty flowers.
Step 5: Place your baby items back on your wreath (one at a time) and find any holes. I then added a few yellow flowers and different greens to fill in the gaps shown below.
Step 6: Thread some ribbon through your wreath and tie a shoe string bow around your baby items.
Now just hang it up on the front door while you are hosting a baby shower and present it to the mom-to-be before she goes home! She can then remove all of these adorable baby items and use them.
Here are a few of the other wreaths I have made:
Hope you got some great ideas! Have fun making baby wreaths…and as always, if you do make one, I would love to see a picture!!!
***Also: I’m a little protective of my wreath pics-so make sure you give credit where credit is due if you use them – if you make a wreath just make sure to let people know where you got the idea and send a little love back my way because you are nice! That’s it. Thank you!***
