Baby Shower Tree

I had a baby shower for a friend before I could take my Christmas tree down. I just took off the decorations and replaced them with ribbons, booties, bottles, socks, pacifiers, ect. Oh and a big fluffy bow, in baby colors draped from the top down the sides. Also, paint clothes pins or use diaper pins and the guests can pin on money.

It was such a good idea and was raved over.

Baby Diaper Tool Kit

Baby Diaper Tool Kit

Baby Diaper Tool Kit

Here is a great twist for a "Baby Diaper Tool Kit"

Instead of a diaper belt for the new father to be, I used a cheap tool box and filled it with the baby stuff. (wipes, diapers, lotion, baby oil, socks, baby brush, diaper rash ointment, etc.)

This way they can re-use the tool box instead of an apron which was brought to my attention they would just throw in a corner.

I didn't take a picture of the diaper tool kit, but found one similar to the one I made - I found it on Pinterest but the link didn't go to a website, so I am not sure of the source.

Great Idea!
by: Desiree

That's a very good idea. Especially for a little boy! Just put some little tool stickers or fishing stickers on 'em and you're good to go! For a little girl, I used a shower caddy and frilled it up. Turned out great!

Tool box
by: Anonymous

I did the same thing for my son. He loved it. You're right he would have thrown the apron in a closet and never used it. This way he will use the tool box for tools and get many uses out of it.

So cute!
by: Amanda F.

My Aunt had these at her baby shower, they are so cute and classy looking. Not cheesy like some baby shower crafts! Her shower was pink and brown and she had both pink and brown 1/8" ribbon bows on hers. We are about to do a baby shower for my sister-in-law and I'm told I have to make these! :)

A new twist on baby shower decorations

by Michelle Dobson
(Palmer, Alaska )

I was hosting a baby shower and I decided to make a decorative twist to the typical clothesline:

Instead of hanging baby clothes on a clothesline, I cut out large letters spelling out the baby's name and using miniature clothespins, I clipped them to a ribbon strung up between 2 doves cut out from card stock / scrapbook paper and stapled to the wall. Very unexpected!

Love it
by: Anonymous

Such a cute baby shower decoration idea -

In addition to adding the letter you could...

also have guests decorate onesies and then hang them on the clothesline.

Or you can hang all of the clothes the mom to be opens on the clothesline for everyone to see. This way you won't have to pass the new baby clothes all around the room where everyone touches them and could possibly get them dirty.

If you are having a specific theme - such as moon and stars for example - you could cut out shapes of moons and stars and hang them up too!

So many cute possibilities!

How to Make A Diaper Wreath

Below is a great video that I found on You Tube for "how to make a diaper wreath."

It is similar to a baby shower diaper cake - but in the shape of a wreath instead of a diaper!

The instructions are detailed and I think I would be able to make this ~ I love the idea that everything on the diaper wreath is able to be used by the mom and baby! So it really makes the perfect gift! ..and it is so cute!

Baby Advice Book

by Taylor
(Aurora, Illinois)

New Baby Advice Book

Before the shower, go to the craft store and buy a scrapbook, or some type of book that you can decorate with pretty paper.

Throughout the shower, pass the book around the room and have the guests write down congratulations, old memories and baby advice on the best ways to help with the baby.

Give to the mom and have her read all of the pages out loud. Fun to hear everybody's advice.

Let the guests know in advance
by: Anonymous

Sometimes it is hard to think of something off the top of your head to write in these books. Give the guests some time to think of good advice and maybe add an extra special sentiment like a poem or something. I did mine in a cheap photo album and sent out index cards and stickers that matched the shower theme.

Buy an artificial wreath and add (with hot glue) party favors or other baby shower decorations.

You can fill it with cute baby items that can be pulled off and used when the baby arrives. Little shampoos, baby wash, nail clippers, etc.

Or you can just add cute decorations.

Variation of baby shower wreath

This is cute, but why not use decorations that can be re-used by the mother-to-be? Like rattles, pacifiers, small containers of lotion, powder, socks, or baby washcloths made into candies/lollipops.

This is a cute idea for baby shower favors!
Simply collect several empty toilet paper rolls (or paper towel rolls cut in half) and fill them with colorful candies.

Then wrap them in cute scrapbook paper (to match the theme of the shower.) Tie the ends with ribbon and you're done! You can even attach a cute little tag saying thanks or giving the shower details.

Mint Book party favors

by Heather S
(Valley, AL, US)

Mint Books in Mason Jar

Mint Books in Mason Jar

Mint Book party favors

I made mint books using and excel and card stock. The card stock is thick enough to support the weight of the mint and hold the bend. I used clip art for the picture on the front and typed a little thank you message on the bac, The top has the date of the shower and the bottom flap has the baby's name on it. On the inside is a individually wrapped livesaver mint secured with a staple. You could use stick dots but I've found that if you use the staple at the bottom it helps hold the flap secure. I prefer the sweet mint flavor because it tastes good and smells good too.You could use any flavor or color you want to coordinate with your theme.

To hold the mint books I founds some quart sized mason jars and painted polka dots on them using the shower theme colors. Then i decorated with curling ribbon. The paint comes off of the glass fairly easily to mistakes can be corrected and the jars can be re-used.

Duct Tape Flower Pens

My daughter came home from school the other day and they had made cute pens that had been wrapped in colorful duct tape and had a pretty flower on top. Just an idea for an alternative to floral tape. You could even match the duct tape to the baby shower color scheme.

hunny pot favors for "winnie the pooh"

by Sue Ringo
(Staunton, il 62088)

Buy fiber based flower seedling pots.

Paint to your theme colors, only on the outside.

For the honey, i used butterscotch discs, keep in the wrappers.

Buy stick-on bee's. I used the foam type.

If you can find the fuzzy bee's with the webbed wings, that's fine too.

After the pots are dry, glue on the bee's.

With marker or gloss black paint, write H U N N Y., let dry.

With floral wire, curl a piece to fit inside the pot, cover with butterscotch discs, leaving 2 inches at the top to place a bee on the wire.

Wrap with ribbon and make a bow.

Baby Shower Balloon Weights

by Jessi K
(Grand Haven)

Baby Jar Balloon Weights

Take clean, empty baby food jars and paint the lids blue or pink, or cover them with the appropriately colored paper.

Make a small hole in the lid and thread ribbon (with the balloons attached) through, making a knot on the inside of the lid so the ribbon won't go back through the hole.

Add candies or colorful stones to fill the baby jar. Twist the lid on, and there you go!

Beautiful little balloon weights that cost less than if you were to buy them at the store.
